ALL WE HAVE IS NOW
“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
Matthew 24:42,43 KJV
One wonderful day Jesus is coming back for us. We don’t know when He is coming back but He is coming back. All we have is now. When He comes back we won’t have time to tell people we’re sorry we hurt them and we won’t have time to tell our family and loved ones how much we love them.
Do your children and your spouse know how much you love them? When is the last time you told them that you love them? More important, when is the last time you told Jesus how much you love Him and appreciate Him? What about our heart? Are there things in our heart that hurt Him and break His heart?
We don’t have the promise of tomorrow or another hour or even another minute. All we have is now. If we aren’t ready to meet Jesus, we need to ask God to forgive us and ask those we have hurt to forgive us and also forgive those who have hurt us. Do we love one another unconditionally as Jesus loves us?
Heavenly Father, You are a loving and compassionate Father. Thank You for all You have done for us and for all You do for us every day. Please forgive us if there is anything in our heart that hurts You. Help us to love one another unconditionally as Jesus has commanded us to love. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
