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!

“O Zion, messenger of good news, shout from the mountaintops! Shout it louder, O Jerusalem. Shout, and do not be afraid. Tell the towns of Judah, ‘Your God is coming!'” (Isaiah 40:9 NLT)

According to dailygood.org, Sociologists have developed elaborate theories of who spreads gossip and news, but they’ve had less success measuring what kind of information travels fastest. More recently, though, researchers at Penn dived deep into the archives of NY Times articles and found a surprising result — good news travels faster than bad!

We all long for hope in our lives, that’s why Jesus’ promised return is called The Blessed Hope. According to scripture, just as He came the first time as a man, so He will come back as King. We do not know exactly when, but biblical prophecy, which has shown itself to be accurate, alludes that it could be this generation that sees this Blessed Hope happen!

Bad news does travel fast, that’s no joke. But when your hurting, a good word is a quick healer! So be ready! He is coming! Whether just for you or for His whole Bride, you can bet on it! Be ready, b/c it could happen today! You are loved & Heaven waits for you! (12/30/13)
