Acts 1:11 "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
How can we not ask, "But when? When will Jesus come back from His going into heaven?" In our pain, we want our answers. We want our answers because our pain robs us of meaning and purpose in our life. We must affirm each day we are living on earth in order to see Christ in the future, whether the future is one second from now or when we see Him in heaven. We are assured; Jesus will come back from heaven in the same way Jesus went into heaven. In our pain, we have hope. Pain without hope is a form of death. Pain with hope means we can live and breathe waiting in hope for another moment full of anticipation we will see Him.
