So That You May Know – Be Prepared
March 6, 2022
Jesus repeatedly said that he would leave this world but would return at some future time. He also said a Kingdom is being prepared for his followers. Many Greeks envisioned this as a heavenly, idealized, spiritual Kingdom. Jews—like Isaiah and John saw it as a restored earthly kingdom. Before Christ’s return we have time to live out our beliefs and to reflect Jesus’ love as we relate to others. People who are ready for their Lord’s return are not hypocritical but sincere; not fearful but ready to witness; not worried but trusting; not greedy but generous; not lazy but diligent. May your life be more like Christ’s so that when he comes, you will be ready to greet him joyfully. Our heavenly rewards will be the most accurate reflection of what we have done on earth, and they will be far greater than we can imagine.
