Jesus is Coming!
"For the day is near, Even the day of the LORD is near;" "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” (Ezekiel 30:3a; Mark 13:32-36 NKJV) Are you ready? Jesus is coming! (Maybe sooner than you think!) No one knows at what point and time Jesus will return to take us home, but He IS coming and Jesus teaches us that we are to be ready. We are to stay alert for that time, and we are to live our lives as if each day is our last. We are to live according to His word EVERY SECOND so that when the time comes we will be ready and prepared. Today is all we have. Yesterday is over and we can't change the past. We have to move on. Tomorrow isn't here yet and we don't know what will happen tomorrow. So, all we have is today to make the most of it and live it in God's way to the fullest and best we can. Get ready! Stay alert! Be prepared! Jesus IS coming! (love, Beau)
