We spend much of our time preparing for things that are going to happen. Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Sporting Events, School and Work. Do we spend as much time preparing for Jesus ?
He IS coming. Are you prepared for Him? Do you know Him?
This fact is beyond exciting to me!!! Talk about a PARTY!!!
Maybe you DO know Him. So, are you doing your best to make sure that others know Him too? As true believers, we are called to go and tell others about Christ Jesus. We are to go and make disciples. What’s a disciple? A follower of Christ.
Matthew 28:19 (NIV) ~ Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
I know that when I am preparing for a special occasion, I tend to give it my all. Well, Jesus IS coming back. I have to ask myself…and I hope you ask yourself too, if I am giving Jesus my all.. Am I doing all I can to spread the Good News?
John 14:28 (NIV) ~ You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
The fact of the matter is that none of us know when our time on this earth is going to be over. None of us know when Jesus is coming back either. We have to be prepared for it now!
Matthew 24:36 ~ No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
Matthew 24:42 ~Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
Matthew 24:44 ~ So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
Those are just a few verses that relate to Jesus coming back. I don’t know about you, but I want Jesus to say to me ,”Well done,good and faithful servant.” I also want everyone to know my Jesus! Not just because not knowing Him guarantees them a ticket to Hell. I want everyone to have the peace and feel the love of my Savior! There is NOTHING like it. Nobody and no “thing” can fill the void that you have if you don’t know Jesus. Only Jesus can fill the emptiness.
Only Jesus can get you to Heaven. He paid the price for every single sin when He suffered on Calvary’s cross. He defeated death when He arose from the dead. He defeated death for you and for me as well. Eternal life, make sure you’ve got it.
Colossians 2:13,14 ~ When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
It is only Jesus that we need. Only Jesus that can save. Only Jesus that paid the price for our sins.
Until Next Time,
