Do you ever think about seeing Jesus? I don’t mean the casual way we sometimes say the phrase, but rather giving serious thought to the moment you meet Him face to face. I think it’s a great exercise that is at once both exhilarating and terrifying. It’s exhilarating because we will know the struggle is over. Everything we’ve endured will be worth it, and we will spend the rest of eternity in the presence of Christ.
I can’t even imagine the tears that will flow that day as an overwhelming peace and rest floods our souls. At the same time, seeing Jesus face to face is a terrifying proposition. His Holiness will make it clear how unworthy we are. I imagine my mind will fill with all the times I let Him down and all the things I left unsaid or undone. We will have no other option but to fall at His feet and beg for mercy.
