Be Prepared

Description

The Bible says that when Jesus returns, the majority of people will not be watching and waiting and will not be prepared for what is to come.

Revelation 1:7 (NIV®)                  

Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him. 

 

When Jesus came to earth the first time, it was something of a covert mission. The religious leaders were clueless. The king wasn’t paying attention. A few shepherds were given a heads-up and came to see the baby born in a barn. But for the most part, it was an overlooked event. When Jesus comes the second time, everyone on the planet will know it. He’ll come as the ruler of the kings of the earth, “with the clouds, and every eye will see him.” But the Bible seems to suggest that sadly, the majority of people will not be watching and waiting and will not be prepared for what is to come. Let’s make sure we are prepared for that day. And let’s help our families and friends and neighbors, here and around the world, be prepared as well.

 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, when I imagine Jesus returning to earth with the clouds it fills me with anticipation and joy! Until that day, give me strength to help all within my sphere of influence to be ready for His return. Come, Lord Jesus! In His name I pray, amen.
