Faith’s Checkbook

He Will Return
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. (John 14:18)
He left us, and yet we are not left,
orphans. He is our comfort, and He is gone, but we are not
comfortless. Our comfort is that He will come to us, and this is consolation enough to sustain us
through His prolonged absence. Jesus is already on His way: He says, “I come quickly”: And he rides
posthaste toward us. He says, “I will come”: and none can prevent His coming, or put it back for a
quarter of an hour. He specially says, “I will come to you”; and so He will. His coming is especially to
and for His own people. This is meant to be their present comfort while they mourn that the
Bridegroom doth not yet appear.
When we lose the joyful sense of His presence we mourn, but we may not sorrow as if there were no
hope. Our Lord in a little wrath has hid Himself from us for a moment, but He will return in full favor.
He leaves us in a sense, but only in a sense. When He withdraws, He leaves a pledge behind that He
will return. O Lord, come quickly! There is no life in this earthly existence if Thou be gone. We sigh for
the return of Thy sweet smile. When wilt Thou come unto us? We are sure Thou wilt appear; but be
Thou like a roe, or a young hart. Make no tarrying, O our God!
