Reflecting on God’s Word …

Salvation is Near!

Luke 21:25-28 NLT
“And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken. Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory. So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”

Reflection

We’ve seen some pretty strange, incredibly unbelievable things in our times. So many centuries have past since Jesus spoke these words and so many natural disasters and world turmoil! How can we know that he will indeed return?

Advent, the waiting and preparation time prior to Christmas is just that — time to wait and prepare! Certain things need to happen and certain preparations need to take place before what is next can happen. We all know very well how life is like that, seasons too need waiting time and preparation.

This Advent season, let’s enjoy waiting for what is to come, with anticipation!
