We have got to realize the grandeur of Jesus’ return. It is what we should be living for so when it happens we are ready and excited. Nothing else should matter, it will be too late for anyone who doesn’t know and have faith in who Jesus is. So we must not be worried about our friends or family or possessions, our excitement should overtake everything in our world.
Jesus says, “If you cling to your life, you will lose it…” Our life could be everything that is a part of us; family, friends, money, possession so we must let go of it and love the Lord just as it says in Matthew chapter 22 verse 37, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.” The time is now to keep studying and learning or seeking and asking, so we fall to our knees in praise and thankfulness upon His return or our last day on earth.
There are a lot of people that talk about it but how many really believe it? Look at what Jesus shares in Luke chapter 18 verse 8 after the persistent widow gets the unjust judge to give her justice. “I tell you, He will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man returns, how many will He find on the earth who have faith?” This is not a scare tactic it is a warning for us to know the Lord, believe in Him and have faith to be like Him. Our journey will never end, we must take some responsibility to learn and grow so we can be ready when it is our last day.
I say thank you for everything you have given us to learn from and I pray as I learn I live out my faith so others see Christ in me not my flesh. Amen
