“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8 (KJV)
Just as a child watches the door, anticipating when their parent will come to pick them up, we should stay in anticipation for the Lord’s return. When we stay ready it affects how we live and how we treat others. While it is tempting to be filled with the cares of life and stressed over situations, there’s a greater mission at hand. One day Jesus is coming back and we must stay alert and ready. Make sure we will be found fighting the good fight of faith, unoffended and walking in love, fulfilling our God-given purpose, sharing the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and occupying till He comes.
Prayer: Father God, thank You for reminding me of Jesus’ soon return. Let knowing this guide my lifestyle and behavior while I wait for Him. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
