Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

—Hebrews 9:28

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Who are you waiting for? Can you think of anything more exciting than to wait for Jesus to come take us home in his glory! But ours isn’t a passive wait. Jesus gave us a commission to take his story to the whole world and call others to join with us in following him. So by the power of the Holy Spirit we wait in expectation as we share Jesus’ good news with passion and as we live with the character and compassion of the Father.

My Prayer…

Majestic King of the Ages, may your Kingdom come in all its fullness and every knee bow to your Savior, and may you grant that it may come to pass in our generation. Through Jesus I expectantly pray. Amen.
