An Ordinary Day

Everyday starts as an ordinary day.
People go about doing their routines, activities, businesses, eating and sleeping habits, experiences etc.
Nothing is out of ordinary;
Everything remains as before..

Then something happens,
Something spectacular and unforgettable;
Something extraordinary and unexplainable;
Something tragic and heartbreaking...
The day is no more ordinary.

Jesus told His disciples that He would return on a day when people are going about their business, sharing meals, having weddings, and etc.
They will have no idea of what is about to happen (Matt. 24:37).

As Christians, we are told to be watchful and prepared (Matt. 24:44).

Everyday maybe an ordinary day.
But it would be nice to be ready to welcome our Savior on this ordinary day!

Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. (Matthew 24:42).
Perhaps today!

Patience in Waiting

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. —2 Peter 3:9

Waiting is part of our lives.

Like the ancient Israelites, we too are waiting for the Lord Jesus Christ. Though He already came as the long-awaited Messiah, we wait for Him to come as Ruler over all the earth. We wait for Christ's Second Coming.

God is also waiting. He waits for people to see His Glory; He waits for people to admit that they are lost without Him; He waits for people to say "Yes" to His love; He waits for people to receive His forgiveness; He waits for people to turn away from their sins. God is waiting for our Repentance and Faith in Him.

God is not slow in coming; He is patient in waiting. He is waiting to have a relationship with those He loves. He had made His first move when He sent Baby Jesus and the sacrificial Lamb. Now He waits for us to welcome Him into our lives as Lord and Savior.

God is waiting for us to make our move to Him. Come.
