How do you remember Christ. Most of us focus on the work of Christ in his death to remember what He has done for us. It is inconceivable that the last public view the world would have of Christ, would be that of a bleeding, dying, crucified criminal, covered with blood, spit, and flies, hanging in a Jerusalem twilight. The indignity and shame of the crucifixion took place in full view of a scoffing crowd. It would only make sense that the coming of Christ will be in full view of the world! The Savior who was humiliated and taunted and put to death in a public display of humanity’s hatred of God will return as conquering Lord in view of the entire world. Revelation 1:7 tells us that, “Behold He comes with clouds; and EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen!” (Emphasis mine). The return of Christ to the earth is essential to give the world the real picture of Christ. He did die on a cross to take upon Himself the penalty for our sin, yet we often forget that He rose victorious from the grave, and ascended on the right hand of God (Hebrews 1:3). Jesus is the rightful King of this world, whether people want to acknowledge that or not. My friends, we have a choice, we can acknowledge Him today as the Lord and Savior of the world, or we can acknowledge Him one day at the judgment as the Lord of the world. The first brings us salvation, and entrance into the peace of God that is offered to all those who bow to the King of kings, the other brings eternal judgment and separation from God forever. Chose now while there is opportunity to worship and serve the Living God.
