Monday Meditation~Are You Ready?

Jesus is coming back.

 Are you ready?

 Are those you love ready? Are your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors?

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him." Matthew 24:36-44 (NIV)

People, get ready.  Jesus is coming.

Lord, make us ready for Your return. Help us to be alert, watchful, and prepared. Help us to share with others the power of Your great love and the good news of redemption. Thank You for loving us and calling us Your own. We long for You, Jesus!

The thought of Jesus coming leaves me with such mixed emotions -- joy for those of us who are ready, and anguish for those who aren't. Thanks for the reminder to be about the business of sharing the Gospel, --Especially those of us who are bloggers -- our posts will remain in cyberspace long after we're gone!!

Love you!!

Hmmm... I am ready. But this is also the reminder to make sure that I am sharing him with those I hold dear.
