A Call to Action

By Ted N. C. Wilson

The hope of the second coming of Christ has burned in the hearts of His people ever since His disciples stood gazing upward, watching their Lord ascend in the clouds. Surely, they hoped, He would return in their lifetime.

Through the centuries, faithful believers clung to the promise given by Jesus: “I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:3).

Charles Wesley, the great eighteenth-century hymn writer, put this long-held desire into words with his hymn “Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus.”

During the Second Great Awakening of the early nineteenth century, “Jesus is coming soon!” was the cry on the lips of Baptist preacher William Miller and countless others as they delved into the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation.

When, after the Great Disappointment, a group of people came together to search the Scriptures, they reaffirmed the imminence of their soon-coming Savior, and in 1860 chose the name Seventh-day Adventist to reflect the centrality of this hope.

Today in 2015, does this hope of a soon-coming Christ still burn within our hearts? After all, some may say, past generations have expected Jesus to come in their lifetimes but He didn’t, so why should I expect Him to come in my lifetime?
