Today I drove past a man standing at a bus stop waiting for the bus. As I drove by he did not look at me, or at anyone else that was driving by. He was looking down the street for the bus.
Aren’t we waiting for Jesus? We should be looking for Him, and not looking at all the problems around us. This man was waiting there because the time was near; it was almost time for the bus to come. He was expecting the bus to come at any moment. We are expecting Jesus to come at any moment because the time is near. All around us are signs that His coming is eminent.
Are you ready and waiting for Jesus?
