If the Lord came today, would you be diligently working (Matthew 24:36-44)? We look for the Lord’s return, but while looking may we not neglect to do as much good as we can while we are here. Paul (Romans 13:11-14) encourages us to be prepared by “putting on the Lord Jesus Christ!”
The Holy Spirit leads us to avoid the gratification of the negative fleshly desires that tear down and destroy us and others. May we put as much energy, time, and money preparing for God’s kingdom as we do for Christmas. The Lord is coming. What will he find you doing?
