2 Tim 4:8

Finally the crown of righteousness is reserved for me. The Lord, the righteous Judge, will award it to me in that day - and not to me only, but also to all who have set their affection on his appearing. [NET]

Stephen: there are signs of the Lord’s coming everywhere. I pray he comes soon. This world needs a ruler who can fix it.

Uche: I want the Lord to come, but not now. I want to complete my house first, get married, and have children. If He comes now, all that will not happen.

Stephen: you are saying this because you have been ill informed about the Lord’s coming. You think there is pleasure here that is comparable to ruling with Christ in the coming kingdom.

Something struck me as I read today’s Bible text. Christians are supposed to anticipate and long for the appearing of the Lord. This is the Hope of our calling; it is God's destiny for us that on that day when the Lord appears, we shall be transformed to be as He is. It is therefore an abnormally for Christians to loose longing for Christ’s appearing.

Now this longing has numerous Consequences. When the Lord appears, we shall be rewarded and glorified according to our work for Him in this current world.

Go into today remembering that Christians who long for the Lord's appearing are busy Christians; they know that the time is short so they use every opportunity to do the Lord's work now (see Eph 5:15-21). Note that is it only a sanctified vessel that is ready for the Lord’s use (see 2 Tim 2:21).

As you pray today, ask the Lord to help you represent Him in that place that He has planted you.
