The end of the church year is quickly approaching, and a new year will soon begin. It is at this time of the year that I begin to start thinking more about advent and Christmas. I think of all of the wonderful things that come with the holidays, like seeing family and friends, and I also begin to prepare myself for the coming of the Lord Jesus. In the midst of all of this I tend to overlook the message that is sent during the last couple of week of the church year. It is now when we hear more about the end of the world and Jesus coming again to save us and grant us eternal salvation. It makes me stop to think about when Jesus will be back, and will I be ready. I once heard that the best way for the devil to persuade you into succumbing to temptation is to convince you that you still have plenty of time to correct yourself, and that there is no big hurry. This thought can lead people into a harmful lifestyle full of sin, and when the time does come, it is too late. So as the old year comes to an end and a new year begins, we are reminded that Jesus is coming to Earth. Not only are we focusing on celebrating the first coming of Jesus Christ, but let us not forget that He will be coming back for us, which could happen at any time.
Are you prepared for Jesus to return?
