Many of us hear Jesus is returning soon, but do we truly believe it?
Sometimes people don’t take Christ’s words seriously until they happen. For example, in John 20:24-29, Jesus told His disciples He would rise again after His death. However, Thomas didn’t believe it until he saw Jesus resurrected.
It would be a sad and terrifying day if you heard Jesus was returning, but didn’t believe it until it happened. That’s because you would likely be unprepared for His return, and by that time, it would be too late to repent for any sin in your life.
Isaiah 55:6 says:
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
Let’s reflect on our lives and ask God where we need to make changes so that we can stand spotless before Him. If we have sin in our hearts like greed, lust, anger, jealousy, or etc. we can repent and ask the Holy Spirit to help us get rid of it before Jesus returns.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
