Why Are We Standing Around?

cloudsSometimes an event in the bible just makes me laugh.

In the first chapter of Acts, Jesus gives His friends some final instructions before He leaves in a remarkable manner.

After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.

They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. “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.” (Acts 1:10-11)

I’m thinking, “Well, it’s not every day we see someone float into the clouds. What if He falls? Is something else going to happen?”

And here are these two white-robed guys telling me Stop staring into the sky. Show’s over. Time to get going.

That’s really a pretty good summary of the message, isn’t it?

Jesus will be back when God decides it’s time. Until then, we shouldn’t be staring at the sky, because He left us stuff to do.

Time to get going.
