We live in societies where it is becoming difficult to distinguish between the good and the bad. It is easy for people to lie, cheat, insult, steal, commit sexual immorality, gossip in the 21 first century and not feel bad at all. People justify the wrong things they do with scriptures. I remember what an accounting lecturer told us in class that “There are 99 ways to hell but 1 way to Heaven”. Jesus put it this way “wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it.” (Matthew 7:13, AMP).
People can continue justifying their wrong doings but the truth is wrong is wrong even when everyone is doing it, and right is right even when nobody is doing it. One thing such people forget is that LIFE is a gift of trust. One day The Owner will come and each person will held accountable for what he/she does with his/her life.
God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. (Ecclesiastes 12:14 NLT)
Jesus is coming at an hour you least expected. The scriptures say He is coming like a thief at night therefore keep watching so that He does not come to meet you unprepared. Its quite surprising that the focus of the church is shifting to how to live prosperous in a world that is reserved for fire. Less or no emphasis is placed on our readiness for the second coming of Jesus Christ but what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?
“Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would not permit his house to be broken into. You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.” (Luke 12:39-40, NLT)
When you are eagerly waiting for christ, it means that you are very excited and interest (feeling strong and impatient desire) to remain in a state in which you expect or hope that Jesus Christ second coming will happen soon. In effect, you must be ready like a traveller (with his luggage) at the airport who is waiting for announcement to board his flight. Do not comform yourself to the customs of this world; others may sin but you cannot, others may gossip but you cannot, others may cheat but you cannot, others may lay for themselves treasures on this world but you cannot.
Friend Heaven is your home and Jesus is preparing your room for you. Do you not think that it will be disappointing that after He has prepared a place for you, he comes to see you unprepared? Let us therefore strip off everything that will prevent us from spending eternity with Jesus. JESUS IS COMING SOON.
Are you eagerly waiting for Him? If your answer is No or Maybe, then Repent from anything that is holding you back. Say this prayer
Lord Jesus, please forgive me for every wrong thing that i have committed. Jesus, You are the Son of God, and I believe that God raised you from the dead. Thank you for saving me today and giving me Grace to wait for your second coming. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
God bless you!
