What if today were the day that Jesus calls his believers home? How would this change how you lived out this day?
I, for one, know that I would feel “unready” to say the least. There are so many things in life that I had always intended to do for God, that I have never gotten around to doing.
There are so many people that I’ve never talked about the gospel with—people of other faiths that I care about and would want to be included in the family of believers before it’s too late.
You might then ask why I don’t simply get it together and talk to these people now, while there’s still time.
That’s a very good question. Perhaps it’s fear that’s stopping me—the anxiety of possible rejection on their part.
What about you? What would you do differently today to prepare for Jesus’ return? Whatever it is, make plans to go ahead and do it while you still can.
The truth is, no one knows when Jesus will come back, and we all have a list of things we could work on before that time comes.
But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.Matthew 24:36
Not even Jesus knows when He is coming back!
Much of your to-do list probably revolves around relationships—righting neglected relationships or forming new ones in the furthering of the gospel and creating goodwill within our community.
So, maybe we should just act like Jesus is coming back today. We would certainly accomplish more for the gospel than we currently are.
Living our lives like it could be anytime would revolutionize our faith and turn many people around us onto the gospel.
Today is a great day to start living like that.
