God Keeps His Promises
For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.” Hebrews 10:37
For the past two days my neighbor’s car alarm keeps going off. I found it extremely annoying the first day, by the second day I was able to just ignore it and today I have just carried on with my life. My neighbor came over this morning and apologized. We stood on the porch and chit chatted as we watched the car being loaded on the back of a tow truck. It was still sounding its alarm as the truck drove away. After we bade each other goodbye I returned to my work. As I sat at my desk, I thought about that car alarm. I thought about how I had come out the first time and the second time it sounded yet, past that I just kind of ignored it. By the third day, I didn’t hear it anymore.
For over 2,000 years we have heard the promise that Jesus will return for his own. I have heard it my entire life, my mother and grandmother before. I think that many of us say it to each other as a means of comfort and hope yet, do we really believe that Jesus will come again?
God always keeps his promises. Always. God is merciful and will offer every opportunity of repentance. His delay is anything but a delay, rather the Father is waiting to fulfill his promise when all have heard his message of salvation and redemption. There are many people in our lives that we are in anguish for, our mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, husbands, wives, and dear friends. God too desires their acceptance of his love and wants to extend his grace to all.
Just because you have heard the alarm over and over do not allow yourselves to become numb. Continue to share Christ with those in your life with all diligence. Do not become weary but anticipate his glorious return.
