This morning, I received a phone call from the school. Schools are closed today through next week, because of precautions to protect us from the Cornonavirus. I thought this would happen, but I didn’t think it would happen so soon. How can something expected catch me off guard?
I know Jesus will come back to earth one day. Would I prepared if that day was today? Honestly, I don’t think that I would be ready. I think the coming of Jesus is some distant event in the future, that I will never see. The thing is I don’t know that. It could be today or tomorrow.
“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”
–Matthew 25:13 (NKJV)
We don’t know the day nor hour that the Son of Man is coming. Not even the angels in heaven know. Only God knows when Jesus will return to the earth.
No One Knows the Day or Hour
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”
–Matthew 24:36 (NKJV)
Am I ready? Or, do I need just a little bit more time to prepare? Am I living my life as if Jesus was coming back at any moment? I wish that I could say a resounding YES!
Am I living my life showing that God lives within me? Am I living my life for God and not my own wants?
Jesus told his followers that if they didn’t believe in him, believe in the works of God. Jesus said to believe that the Father is in him.
If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”
–John 10:37-38 (NKJV)
God is in each of us. Can others see God’s light shine through us?
