2 Peter 3:9
"The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance." NIV
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." KJV
No one knows the day or the hour of Christ's return. We do know He will come like a thief in the night. He has told us the signs that let us know His coming is near. Those signs are occurring loud and clear. Yet, God is patiently waiting for all who will come to Him, giving ample opportunity to all.
Heavenly Father, Although You have kept the time of Christ's return locked in Your heart, we thank You and praise You that Your patience is allowing those who need Your salvation to come while there is time. Help us to shine Your light that will draw others to You until that day comes. In Jesus' name, Amen.
