A few days back, we went through a spell of really foggy days. While on a morning walk I noticed two crows atop a light pole. The atmosphere was almost Gothic, with the sun barely visible through the mists. The crows seemed to be glancing uneasily over their shoulders as if waiting for something portentous to happen.
Know where I’m going with this? You probably do. Don’t you once in awhile feel the emotions I’m projecting on those crows (who were probably perfectly fine)? Isn’t it easy to look around us and see scarcely any hope in any direction? Doesn’t God’s glory seem dismally faint?
But those days of literal fog are gone now. The literal sun shines brightly, though the days are chillier. And the same thing will happen as the return of Jesus draws near. One day—and in all likelihood it will be soon—the sky will blaze with a glory not from the sun, and the Savior will descend. You won’t miss it—so don’t miss it!
