In The Meantime…

“Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw Him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:11)
If I had been with the disciples at Christ’s ascension, I think I would have done a lot of looking up, keeping an eye on the sky for Christ’s return. His return would usher in eternal life with Him … forever!
Yet, the message of the angels was “not yet.” Sure, we can and should glance up at the sky to be reminded of His return; but we should spend most of our time shifting our glance sideways to our neighbors. The ‘in the meantime’ message is go… go to the places God calls you and share the Good News about Jesus. Tell others about HIs life, death, and resurrection… tell them He’s coming back to claim those who belong to Him.
The place to go for our LeadaChild mission is the international schools and educational enrichment programs that we support throughout the world. At these places, we know that children regularly hear the message of a Heavenly Father who created them and cares for them, of a Son named Jesus who rescued them from sin, death, and the devil, and of a Spirit who fills their hearts with faith, hope, and eternal life.
Pray for these children and the teachers that share the wonderful Gospel message with them… pray that the Spirit works in their hearts so that they too begin to glance up at the heavens with great anticipation of our Lord’s return!
