Well, a new year is upon us. 2017 is now nothing but a memory and 2018 is stretched out ready for us to make our mark. Got any plans for the new year? Are you planning on starting some new habits or ditching some old ones? 2018 could be the year to do it.
As we come to the end of the year, the thought came to me, “This could be the year the Lord returns.”
There was a time that event was seen as imminent, the thought and hope in believer’s hearts and minds was “perhaps today.” I wonder if we’ve gotten too comfortable in this old world? I wonder if we’ve lost the desire to dance on streets that are golden and are content to trudge along on streets that are asphalt?
I am in no way advocating that believers not prepare and plan for the future. I’m just saying, He said He would be back, and He will be back.
His return is not a myth or a maybe, it is a promise and it is a certainty.
I trust that 2018 will be a great year for each of you. And may you be able to say as did the early Christians, “Maranatha”. Which means “Come O Lord”!
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
