I Expect Jesus-Acts 27:9-15

A Sunday school teacher gave every boy in his class a new testament and encouraged each of them to write his own name inside the front cover. Several weeks later, he asked those who have excepted Christ as their Savior to write these words under his name: “I accept Jesus.“ One boy scribbled instead, “I expect Jesus.“ When the teacher talked to him, he realized that the boy knew what he had written after all. He had not only trusted the Lord for salvation but expected Him to be with him at all times and do all He had promised. That boy’s statement presents a simple yet profound commentary on the true meaning of faith. It should be no surprise to us when God keeps His word. It’s to be expected! Attempt great things for God; expect great things from God.
