Now that we are nearing the Advent season, part of this season is to look back at what Jesus did for us when He came to earth and gave us hope and salvation through the Cross. But the other part of the Advent season is to look forward in the hope of His return, His second coming. And one verse I have been thinking on is Psalm 27:4, which says:

“One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.”

And if you look at the people in the Bible who have seen the Lord, they are always so stunned at seeing Him. Isaiah, when he sees God, says, “Woe is me” or Moses, after seeing the Lord on Mount Sinai, he comes down from the mountain and his face is glowing from being with the Lord. So, this was just an encouragement to look forward to the Lord’s second coming in this Advent season as well as look back.
