Just as every journey begins with a first step, every journey ends with a last step. And after about 18 months of dreaming, planning, writing and a year of filming, we have come to the last of our 365 daily devos. We did this for two people: you and God. We hope you have been encouraged and challenged by our meager efforts. Most of all, we hope that God has been pleased and somehow honored by our efforts.
I do want to thank Terry Brown, a good friend and staff member, for his ideas and hard work; Ben Brubaker, our cameraman and video editor; and my assistant, Amy Boff, who volunteered to translate my writing into English so you could read it.
As we film the last of the original 365 daily devos, I want to remind you of something far more important. The writer of Hebrews tells us of our final steps in this life when he says in Hebrews 9:27, “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.”
I love the next verse, “So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.”
That is where I hope you are, eagerly waiting for his return; I hope these daily devos have helped you along the way. I know they have me, and I have learned more about Him and me through this journey.
So until we meet again, let us all eagerly wait His return.
“And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.”
