Christ did not have to offer himself many times. He wasn't like a high priest who goes into the most holy place each year to offer the blood of an animal. If he had offered himself every year, he would have suffered many times since the creation of the world. But instead, near the end of time he offered himself once and for all, so that he could be a sacrifice that does away with sin. We die only once, and then we are judged. So Christ died only once to take away the sins of many people. But when he comes again, it will not be to take away sin. He will come to save everyone who is waiting for him.
Hebrews 9: 25 - 28
Are you waiting for the return of Jesus Christ or are you wondering what will happen when He does come back to earth? If there are two men and one is waiting for the return of Jesus and the other one is wondering about what will happen when He does, their lives will be very different!
The man who is waiting for Jesus will be at peace with God and able to ride out the storms of life with grace and patience. The man who is wondering what will happen when Jesus comes will be looking continually for the peace that he does not experience. The wondering man may try hard to do the right thing every day and please the Lord, but believes that his forgiveness is based on whether or not he remembered to ask for that forgiveness. If he did not then he thinks he will stand condemned at the Day of Judgment.
The man who is waiting for Jesus knows that his salvation is based on the Blood of Jesus and not on how accurately he can remember his sins!
Are you waiting for the return of Jesus or are you wondering what will happen when He does? If you believe the Words of Jesus you will be waiting and not wondering. Read John 3:16 and then ask yourself whether you should be "Waiting or Wondering!"
"Lord Jesus, speak to my heart today so that I may be waiting for You when You return and not wondering what will happen when You do! Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen."
