You Still Waiting On What's His Face To Come Back
I laughed at loud at this line. "You still waiting on what's his face to come back?" It was a line of the cold open during last weekend's SNL. Alec Baldwin, playing the role of President Donald Trump, had to drop in this one-liner during a phone call with Mike Pense who responds with, "You mean Jesus, sir?"
There is nothing like a good hearty laugh, but at the same time, the return of Christ is no laughing matter. It's imminent. It's going to be divisive. It will be just. And I promise we won't be laughing when he returns, and his name will echo understandably across the earth. Nevertheless, here is how the apostle Paul looked at this situation.
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.—Philippians 1:21
It's the daily grind of the imminent return. It's for now, till then.
DO THIS: Live for Christ.
PRAY THIS: God, give me direction on how to live for you today. The adventure of today is sure to present me challenges and tensions, which will be no laughing matter. May I think and act as your Son—living all in as if today is my last.
