Taken from today’s Gospel (Luke 12:39-48)
‘You too must stand ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.’
Are we ready for Jesus coming down to earth from Heaven on the last day? Are we ready for that final day when we will be judged and our eternal fate decided? Jesus gives us a simple warning to always be ready for that day.
In order to be ready I think it is important that we always maintain a good prayer life, giving God His proper place at all times. That is, first place.
In every thought, every decision, and every action, God must always come first. He must be our first consideration. In that way we are always thinking of Him and we are preparing ourselves for His coming.
