“I preach as if Christ died yesterday, rose again today, and is coming tomorrow.”–Martin Luther
Is it that fresh for you, when you speak of Him? We often say, when reunited with a close friend, that it seemed as if it were only yesterday that we were last together. That is the result of intimate communion. I suspect the more intimately we are acquainted with the Savior, the above will become ever more the norm.
As the depth of love grows, so does the expectancy and eagerness about being together again.
As the trust increases, so much the more do we believe Him when He says, “Behold, I come quickly.”
