Are You Waiting?


2 Samuel 19:24-30

The Story

King David returned to his throne in Jerusalem.

Some were pleased and ready to receive him; others were not that glad.

Mephibosheth was waiting for his return and he came out to meet the king.

This was the man who had been misrepresented by his servant Ziba.

Mephibosheth hadn't washed or shaved since the day David left Jerusalem.

He had spent his time in mourning over the king's absence.

He was waiting for his return.

Lessons

Not every Christian will be worried when Jesus returns.

There are some who has spent their entire life waiting for Jesus to return.

Some of them are looking for Him right now.

One day their hearts' cry will be answered.

The Lord Jesus will do as He said; He will return in power and glory and take His people to be with Him in Heaven (1 Thes. 4:16-17; 1 Cor. 15:51-52).

Remember...

Many Christians will be waiting for His return.

Will we be found waiting when He returns?

Or, will we be caught looking at the world and all its treasures?

The King is coming.

Let's keep watching and waiting for His return.
