He’s Already Waiting

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. [Matthew 25:34 NIV]

Last week, I talked about whether we are ready to meet Jesus if it happened to be today. This week I am looking at it from the other angle — that Jesus is ready and waiting for us — right now!

From His perspective, everything has been done. He has completed the work of salvation for us. He defeated the enemy and went to heaven to prepare a place for us. Now, all that is left is for us to come home.

I was inspired by a song a couple of weeks ago, that got me thinking about this whole idea. It was a Casting Crowns song – Already There (you can listen to the song below). Here is the chorus:

When I’m lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory
Cause You’re already there
You’re already there
Standing at the end of my life
Waiting on the other side
And You’re already there
You’re already there

I love that! “To You my future is a memory.” I can just imagine Him standing there, kind of like how a groom waits at the end of the aisle for his bride, in complete anticipation of a perfect future together. It makes me feel just as eager to meet Him at the end.

Do you get excited when you think about meeting Jesus face to face?

  1. That’s a really comforting thought to cling to. If He’s standing there waiting, we need fear nothing. What could be better than that?

    • It is comforting, isn’t it Paula. And it stirs anticipation, too. Thanks. 🙂

  2. “To You my future is a memory.” THAT really is awesome! A little like something I was listening to today, which said, NOTHING about us has ever taken God by surprise. He already knows us – to the end! Mind boggling… and then so assuring! He loves me even though He knows me! SO blessed to know that 🙂

    • Yes, that’s the line that got me started! It is so great to know that even though God knows our stuff ups in advance, He perseveres and loves us anyway … to the end. 🙂
