Soon I Can Praise You Face-to-Face
Lord Jesus, you took on my humanity and were born just like me. You honored the human race by living among us and as one of us. You offered your body on the cross, were buried like us, and rose again not only in spirit but in body too.
When you ascended into heaven, you brought your body with you! You took our humanity to the very throne room of heaven. You are now bonded to us into eternity. We praise you and worship you! We are honored by your total commitment to the rescue of the human race.
As for me, I can live joyfully and confidently because you have guaranteed my ultimate victory over death, grave, and hell. I can bear anything, undergo any hardship, absorb any sorrow, face any satanic attack, or endure any loss when I know that I will soon be with you.
I’m not worried about what I will leave behind here on this earth. You will replace it all and give me much more. But my greatest treasure in heaven, Lord Jesus, is you. I can’t wait to see you face-to-face. I am eager to give you my love and worship in person. “And I—in righteousness I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness” (Psalm 17:15).
Come soon, Lord Jesus.
