Well, folks I got so busy I forgot to conclude my 40 strangers in 40 days postings. So this is to conclude this group of postings. I hope that is was a time of outreach for you as it was for me. Though I didn't see anyone saved I did sow seeds that I pray will reap rewards.
In conclusion we are drawn to these passages:
9. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld , he was taken up ; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up , behold , two men stood by them in white apparel;
11. Which also said , Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
This is our glorious hope that Jesus will come again. That we will meet him in the air and forever we will be with the Lord.
1 Thes 4:16-18:
16. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17.Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18.Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
This should keep us all smiling. And is the next in my series of posts...Are you ready?
