Maybe the more important question is, what ever this ‘return’ might look like, is how are things since Jesus ‘left”??
Have we stuffed things up?, how have we loved our enemies? and have we loved our neighbours as our selves?
How are we doing on the ‘stranger’ and ‘sojourner’ front?, how is the planet looking?
Who have we in excluded rather than include?
Has ‘justice been served’?
Has God’s will been on earth as in heaven?
Have I though of the needs and desirers others over my own?
Now ask yourself, when Jesus ‘returns’, how ready are you?
If I think my faith and you think your faith is is about ‘pie in the sky in the sweet by and by, you’d be wrong, its more like ‘steak on the plate while we wait’!!
before worrying over Jesus return, ask yourself has justice been done?, have we loved kindness? and have we walked humbly with God?… THEN if time permits spent time concerning yourself with Jesus return, OR get on with humbly walking with God….. you might run into Jesus along the way!!!

Speaking recently with a friend as he told me the story of his adopted sisters arrival,
he himself is adopted, and this story was relayed to me as we prepared the funeral service for their father.
He described a time when his dad was still in bed and he and his wife heard the foot steps of their daughter as a toddler coming down the hall , on hearing her foot steps, that they knew they had made the right choice in adopting her.
