Up, Up, and Away
My text for today will be from 1st Thessalonians 4:16. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Years ago an animated superman cartoon aired on TV and when Superman would take off flying, he would say, “Up, Up, and Away!” Well, one day, we as Christians will take off up in the air when the Lord calls our name to come up to meet him in the clouds. What a great day that will be.
With all the negativity going on around us, all I want to do is just leave this ole world. If only we could. But one day the Lord will come down through the clouds and call us by name. Only those that are born again will be able to recognize his voice and only those that are his will go up when he calls.
Are you listening for his voice?
Will you recognize his voice?
If not, see the devotional entitled, Do You Have Your BoardingPass? Jesus is coming soon and for Christians it will be Up, Up, and Away!
