And you yourselves be like men who wait for their master…” (Luke‬ ‭12‬:‭36‬ NKJV)

Growing up in an Army town, you never knew exactly when deployed soldiers were coming home. Women in our church were vigilant to keep the house cleaned, there hair fixed, and the diaper bag packed, because at any moment, the phone might ring and be told that the plane was coming in! For military families, you can’t get ready; you have to live ready.

We have a promise from our Savior: One day He is returning for us. It might be the whole church body or you alone through a life circumstance. Regardless, when it’s our time to leave this world and face eternity, there won’t be a chance to “get ready”. Spiritual vigilance, much like the military, means that we must live ready, anticipating our Lord’s call to come home!

Always remember that we are not earthly beings having spiritual experiences in this life; we are spiritual people having an earthly experience until our home is built! Live ready to serve in this life, and ready to go for the one to come. It could be today! You are loved!
