1 Kings 8:1-30; Jeremiah 15:1-21; Philippians 1:1-20
Ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. 1 Corinthians 11:26
What will happen when our Lord comes? First, He personally
shall descend from heaven. Then the dead in Christ shall rise first.
Those who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Thus we shall always
be with the Lord (1 Thess. 4:16-17). What a grand reunion of loved
ones it will be then! Till He comes, let us eat of the bread and drink
of the cup, remembering and revering Him. —K. C. Ung
See, the feast of love is spread,
Drink the wine, and break the bread;
Sweet memorials, till the Lord;
Calls us round His heavenly board;
Some from earth, from glory some,
Severed only, till He come. —E. H. Bickersteth Jr.
