I was a passenger in the car that day.
Riding down the highway, I noticed a large cloud in the sky.
It was such a captivating sight, it was difficult to look away.
As each moment passed, I didn’t want to miss any change or subtle nuance in the sky.
Have you ever wondered what it will be like when Jesus returns?
1 Corinthians 15:50-53 reads,
I tell you this, my brothers: an earthly body made of flesh and blood cannot get into God’s Kingdom. These perishable bodies of ours are not the right kind to live forever.
But I am telling you this strange and wonderful secret: we shall not all die, but we shall all be given new bodies! It will all happen in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For there will be a trumpet blast from the sky, and all the Christians who have died will suddenly become alive, with new bodies that will never, never die; and then we who are still alive shall suddenly have new bodies too. For our earthly bodies, the ones we have now that can die, must be transformed into heavenly bodies that cannot perish but will live forever.
Can you just imagine seeing Jesus returning in the sky as big as that cloud?
What a glorious sight that will be!
