WE DON’T KNOW WHEN
“Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
Matthew 24:44 KJV
Have you ever expected company and spent days cleaning the house and then without warning, your company came early? You probably felt bad because you didn’t have enough time to make things as pretty as you wanted them to be. It’s the same with Jesus coming back for us.
We don’t know when Jesus is coming back for us but He is coming and we need to be ready. We may be saved but how about our heart? Is our heart in right standing with God? Each one of us needs to examine our heart and see if there is anything that hurts God.
Have we forgiven the people who have hurt us and have we asked the people we hurt to forgive us? Have we allowed bitterness, resentment and all other things that hurt Jesus and break His heart to remain in our heart? If we want God to forgive us, we had better forgive the ones who hurt us.
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for the times when we have hurt You. Search my heart and if there is anything that hurts You, I’m sorry. Father, I pray for every person who has never invited Jesus into his or her heart. May this be the day they say yes to Jesus. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
