Mars Hill Staff Devotional
Loving the Second Coming and the Assurance of Salvation
by John Piper
Eagerly awaiting His return is an indication of authentic faith (Hebrews 9:28)
So the issue for us is: Do we eagerly long for the coming of Christ? Do we want to see his kingdom established and do we want to be reunited to him in closer personal fellowship? Or do we want him to wait while our love affair with the world runs its course? That is the question that tests the authenticity of faith.
