Favre will return today...or will he...where is the confidence?

"Favre back as a Packer... for now."

These were the words in a local paper today. Brett Favre and his wife, Deanna arrive on a plane last night just in time for Family Night at Lambeau. He has returned and is supposed to come back today to the team, however, there is much speculation if he will come back as a Packer, Viking (my choice), Bear, starter, backup, etc, etc. No one really knows, not even Brett himself.

Every day that we wake up, do we know what will happen on this day? Do we truly know? Concerning Favre, people have spent hours guessing what might happen and non of the discussions have created any more confidence in what the final outcome will be. We guess what will happen in the future, who will do this or who will do that, but we really have no idea....

Except in one case. When Christ returns there will be no question of what He will do. As it describes in I Thessalonians 4, "The Lord will descend from heaven with a cry of command...and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive who are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds."

As God promised us in Baptism that we would join in his resurrection (Rom.6:4), we have the confidence of knowing, Christ will return and we will be with him due to His blood. We do not know the hour or time, but we know that He is coming, and when He comes He will take us home. No questions, no trades, no releases, but through faith in Christ, HE WILL TAKE US TO HEAVEN!
