Waiting patiently

Like a farmer must wait patiently…

Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.  You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.  –  James 5:7-8

Jesus will one day return – not as a suffering servant, but as judge – to receive God’s people and to enact judgment upon the earth for all those who have sinned against God and rejected the only way of salvation [through Christ].  The Christian hope – that Jesus will come again and make all things better and new.  Do you have this confident hope?
