Those of us who have been Christians for many years have waited with anticipation for the return of Jesus. We look at the signs around us and compare them to Matthew 24, telling each other that His return to reign on the earth must be soon. But God has a plan and His plan is salvation for as many as possible.
So while we wait impatiently, demanding that God do something about the condition of the world and all the rampant sin, God is patiently waiting for more to repent so that they don’t face eternal destruction. I’m thankful that God is patient, aren’t you? He patiently waited for me and there are others He is calling to, others who need to come and confess and repent. God is a God of justice, but He is also One of love and He wants the best for all of us, not just a few. Although waiting is hard sometimes, it will be worth it when we see God and all the souls He has saved worshipping Him around His throne. While we wait, our task is to tell others about His love, sharing our testimony and the difference He has made in our lives. Each one tell others…until He returns triumphantly to take us home.

Waiting is, in fact, hard at times. I’m so glad He is very patient with His children…especially this one!
