Episode 307 Show Notes

From the Show

On the one hand we want him to come right now. On the other hand, we think of immediately why we don’t want him to come right now—my loved ones. It would break my heart if they weren’t reconciled to the Lord. And so, we need to have the heart of the Lord who—if he is patent and he’s righteous and holy—if he’s patient enough and loving enough to delay his return so that he can gather up all of his sheep into his fold before the coming final judgment, then we should have the same patients he has.

—Michael Horton
