Letís Be Ready

Happy New Year! Looking forward to what this new year might bring, I canít help but wonder if 2012 will be the year when Jesus comes back. But then I also wonder if Iím ready.

All of my life Iíve had to ďbe ready.Ē As a child, I had to be ready for dinner by washing my hands. As an adult, being ready for important responsibilities continues to be an ongoing reality. But Iíve come to realize that nothing is more important than being ready for our reunion with Jesus.

Speaking of Christís return, John tells us that ďeveryone who has this hope in Him purifies himselfĒ (1 John 3:3). Looking forward to Jesusí return fills us with hopeónot a wish-list kind of hope, but a solid expectation that motivates us to keep our hearts from sinful distractions and rivets our attention on becoming more like Him. If we really believe that this might be the year of His return, we will be more ready to forgive, to seek forgiveness, and to share Godís unconditional love with others.

As we consider the possibility that Jesus could return this year, letís be sure that we are ready. Letís strive to be pure as He is pure, anticipating the day when tears and sorrow, pain and death will all be replaced with the everlasting joy of His presence.



Expecting Jesusí soon return
Will help us live a life thatís pure;
For if weíre ready when He comes,
We will not be ashamed but sure. óSper

Wanting to be ready for Christís return will make a difference in the way we live.
