It should bring some comfort to you to know that even after the disciples revealed their weakness by disbursing after Jesus was arrested, He still received their testimony of faith. Their faith was tested, in order that they would grow into people whose words and lives matched even to the point of death. Is that you?
God brings us through the same progression. Does your faith need to be checked? Are you living out what you say you believe about Jesus, or have you scattered, and left Him? You know He died (was crucified), was buried, raised from the dead, and now sits at the right hand of Power (Matthew 26:64). Some of the Disciples saw Him die, and supposed that His work was defeated, and returned to their own dwellings. Have you done that? Because Jesus seems to be delayed in Him return, have you settled in to the things of the world, living as though His return is yet for another lifetime?
The one thing all Believers should be waiting for is the return of our Lord and Savior. With the perils of today, He could return much sooner than any of us realize. Are you living as tough He will return at anytime, or have your grown weary of hearing that? Check your faith, and you will find where you stand on His soon return. As of this writing, it’s not too late to ‘get things in order.’ Even if He doesn’t come sooner than later, where is your FOCUS. What are your priorities in life?
John 16:32 Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
