Faithfully Waiting For Christ’s Return

“Those who denounce the doctrine of the second advent as speculative, fanciful and unpractical, would do well to reconsider the subject.
The doctrine was not so regarded in the days of the apostles. In their eyes, patience, hope, diligence, moderation, personal holiness, were inseparably connected with an expectation of the Lord’s return. Happy is the Christian who has learned to think with them! To be ever looking for the Lord’s appearing is one of the best helps to a close walk with God.”
