Our Lord’s Return Is a Practical Hope
by Arthur W. Pink

The hope of our Lord’s second advent produces loyalty and faithfulness to Christ. “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink and to be drunken; the lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers” (Luke 12:42–46). The moral purpose of this parable (see context of above quotation) is apparent. While the steward maintained an attitude of watchfulness he was faithful and sober, but when he said in his heart “my lord delayeth his coming.” He began to beat his fellow-servants and to eat and drink and be drunken. Watching for the Lord then is an incentive to loyalty and fidelity, while unwatchfulness results in worldliness of heart, carelessness of walk and carnality of life.

The return of the Lord is presented as a motive to brotherly love. “…The Lord made you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: to the end He may establish your hearts unblamable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ…” (I Thes. 3:12–13). In view of the fact that our Lord may return at any hour, how awful are divisions between the Lord’s own people. Soon shall each of us appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ where every wrong will be righted and every misunderstanding cleared up. The Lord is at hand, therefore let us sink our petty differences, forgive one another even as God hath for Christ’s sake forgiven us and increased and abound in love one toward another.

The hope of our Lord’s return is the antidote for worry. “Let your forbearance be known unto all men. The lord is at hand. In nothing be anxious…” (Phil. 4:5–6). Brethren in Christ, why be so fearful about meeting next year’s liabilities? Why be anxiously scheming and fretting about the future? Why be worrying about the morrow? Tomorrow you may be in heaven. Before tomorrow dawns the assembling shout may be given. At any hour thy Savior may come. The Lord is at hand and His appearing will mean the end of all your trials and troubles. Look not then at your dangers and difficulties, but for your Redeemer. In nothing be anxious.

Thank You, precious Holy Spirit, for filling us and lifting us
We love You, we worship You and magnify You
We look for Your soon coming; we purpose to make adjustments to remain faithful
Thank You, Father, for empowering us to let go of anxieties and look to You
Let the past be past!
Be smoothed and cleared away, repositioned in Jesus’ name
We lift up those parts
There is a way
Do it, say it, declare it, receive it!
It’s right to walk in that way, to call it forth—the time is now!
Staying under Your hedge of protection which enables us to go

Word of the Lord came forth:

“Distractions, lies, inaccurate words will all begin to descend and try to move the Body out of its right way. Deception and strife and every other evil work, but in Me covered by the blood looking, watching, expecting for My return will strengthen your heart and work on your eyes and help your heart to see Me through the debris and focus your attention to where it needs to be. So My power, My strength, My anointing in you, all of these things are working together to take you all the way through. For you have been called and equipped and anointed. Abide in Me, that is what He’s saying.”

This is the day the Lord has made and we are thankful for it
We believe our steps are ordered, and we are where we need to be
Thank you for Your presence today, for the victory that has been won
We give you all honor, glory, and praise
