Looking forward to His presence is what excites me most, particularly that we “will see His face.”
Imagine that for a moment, if you can. You . . . seeing the face of God.
Every person in the Scriptures who had the occasion to catch a glimpse of the Almighty hit the dirt in a coil of shame and terror. But we Christians will one day gaze full into His eyes and marvel at His holiness, without fear of punishment, because Jesus took that punishment when He died for us.
We’ll see God not in parables, not in metaphors, not in a mirror dimly, but face to face.
We will see—with our own eyes—the face of God.
Ironically, the throne from which God will finally judge all evil is called, “great white” (Revelation 20:10-15). I like that.

Remember the End of the Story
So as you swim in the fray of your struggles, never allow your obligations or your problems distract your mind from your destination.
Don’t forget the end of the story.
Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us.
We have His promise that He will come again and take us who believe in Him to be with Him, that where He is, we may be also.
We will see His face.
We will serve Him.
Forever and ever.
