“READY?” asks a broadband advertisement I found not long ago in our letterbox. “The Future is exciting,” it says above the question.
When I am thinking about the future the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ comes to my mind.
The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is foretold in the Bible, but the time is unknown. That’s why the Lord Jesus Christ says in Matthew 24:44, “So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.” And we must also have the true Attitude concerning readyness.
In Hebrews 9:28 we read, “Unto them that look for him shall he appear a second time.” “Occupy till I come,” says our Lord Jesus Christ in Luke 19:13. Read also Matthew 24:46
Moody said, “I look upon the world as a wrecked vessel. Its ruin gets nearer and nearer. God said to me, ‘Moody here’s s a lifeboat. Go out and rescue as many as you can before the ship sinks.”‘
“George Whitefield, the great English Evangelist said, ‘I am daily waiting for the Son of God.’ But he did not sit down and do nothing. He burned out his life in proclaiming the Gospel of Christ.” – Billy Graham
Yes, the future is exciting for me, and I am ready for the future with the Lord Jesus Christ.
