“Therefore, you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.” Matthew 24:44
As we enter Advent this year under the theme “The Dawn Draws Near,” we consider the promise of Jesus’ return. Advent is the beginning of a new liturgical year and we always begin with the end in mind. Jesus has promise to come back and finish the work He started on the cross and in the resurrection. We are closer now to his return than ever before and the question we ask on the first Sunday of Advent is simply, ‘are we ready?’ What does it mean to be ready for Jesus to come back? If you knew Jesus was going to knock on your door this evening, how would you spend the day in preparation? Helping others, praying, serving your church, reading scripture, giving away your possessions, expressing love to your family? We are to live our lives everyday in expectation of meeting Jesus face to face very soon.
