Confidence When He Comes #267

28  And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. 29  If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him. (1 John 2:28-29)

Jesus will personally appear “at His coming”. Jesus will not have an invisible coming as the Premillennial “Left Behind” saga suggests. His coming will involve His magnificent appearance. By abiding in Christ now, you will have confidence in His presence when He appears. Children of God “abide in Him” – they “practice righteousness”. You abide in Christ by “seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matt. 6:33). By following the will of Christ you will be a confident, unashamed child of God before Christ when He comes. Seek His righteousness by practicing it today.
