Today’s scripture: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2
Since the day Jesus ascended to the heavens, people of have been predicting His
return. They give specific dates, and then when those dates pass without Jesus’
coming, many just change the date again.
Jesus was very clear: “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even
the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and
pray; for you do not know when the time is” (Mark 13:32-33).
Only the Father knows. And He’s always known. Yes, the Bible does give some
hints, and we’ll look at a few of those in the next few days. But Christ could
return today—or one hundred years from now.
So what should we do? We should do as my grandpa used to say: Plan as though
Christ won’t return in your lifetime; live as though He will return in the next
Meditate on God’s word. Pray without ceasing. Serve Him and others. Focus on
the fruit of the Spirit. Seek His will for as long as you’re on earth.
And be ready—for He will return.
