A question I often hear pastors and writers ask is, “If you knew Jesus was coming tomorrow, how would you live today?” The best answer I ever saw or heard in response to this question was from John Wesley. He said he would live it as he has every other day, practicing the disciplines of his spiritual life. What an amazing testimony! We should all aspire to give such an answer. Tragically, few of us can answer in this way.
As the days grow darker and the return of our Savior draws nearer, it becomes urgent we prepare now to meet our Lord. While so many of us play around and dabble with Christianity, I can assure you Jesus will not be playing when He returns. If we don’t hold fast to our faith today, what makes us think we will be ready to meet Him tomorrow?
