An Extraordinary Day
by Charles R. Swindoll
I will come like a thief in the night,
and you will not know at what hour
I will come to you.
Most of our days begin rather predictably. Day after day, for the most part, we could enter into our diary the same three words: "No big deal."
Days don't begin with divine skywriting. . . . Angelic choirs don't waken us with celestial harmony, blending their voices in the "Hallelujah Chorus."
However, days that begin uneventfully can also lead into an unbelievable, indescribable series of heart-stopping experiences. Ordinary days, in fact, can become extraordinary.
How about the day Jesus arrived? There wasn't one citizen in Judea who awoke that morning expecting the day to bring such a life-changing event in the village of Bethlehem.
And what about the day . . . of Christ's return?
Homemakers will be shopping. Planes will be taking off and landing. . . . Then, suddenly, in the twinkling of an eye, Christ will split the sky, and God's great plan for the future will suddenly take center stage. It could be tomorrow.
It could be today!
