The day Jesus comes back. Don't I need to be reminded that's what I'm waiting for? Don't I need to be reminded that's what I'm living and working for? Lydia, get ready, be ready, what a great day it's going to be.
We can't be sleeping. We have to be awake. It could happen at any moment...like a thief in the night...we have to be ready! Lord, how can we be ready?
Love one another. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Lord, how can I love You with my strength? How can I love You with my mind? How can I love You with my soul? How can I love You with my heart? How can I love my neighbor as myself?
How can I truly live a Christian life?
How can I live awake...ready for IT, THE day? The day all Heaven, all the earth, the very dirt, every soul, all creation aches, aches, aches for. THE day. How can I be ready for it?
Like Noah, Lord, give me the faith it takes to just keep building that boat. Whatever it is You have put before me to do. Whoever it is You have brought before me to love. Give me faith, endurance, and patience. Give me wisdom and hope.
We have to stop living comfortably, fearfully, disobediently. We have to start living faithfully, boldly, loudly, following Jesus blindly.
Jesus. is. coming. back.
