Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 27 August – 2 September 2017
“‘Men of Galilee,’ they said. ‘why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.'”
A problem that we have in our live streaming broadcasts at church is the lack of a fast and stable internet connection. The present system is considered “break-even” or “just enough” for a decent broadcast. We are capped on what we can do and have to live in the limits of the system.
That thing will soon change, and I mean soon. We have recently applied for a high-speed fiber internet connection that will increase our speed 25x from the current setup. That will remove the limits and at the same time allow us to stream without shutting down the internet to our other offices.
Similar to our lives here in this world, we are living in the limits of our mortal existence. The coming of Jesus will change the situation we are in. We will no longer live in the shadow of death, sorrow and pain but rather in joy, bountifulness and eternal life. His coming will be more than just a relief but rather a gift for everyone, more so to those who are suffering.
No one knows when Jesus Christ will come again, so we are told to prepare every time as His coming may be in a moment when we least expect it.
Ready or not, He will come again!
