A Call to God’s Church

But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (Mark 13:32)
As we are anticipating the end times, we should be doing several things as members of God’s Church. We have so much hope because we are His children. Therefore, we need to allow that hope to ignite our faith and carry out these three things as we await Christ’s return:  
First, we must be wise. Before the rapture of the saints, be wise and study the Word of God. That's why these words are here. You don't need to stay in the dark; you must know the Word of God. You never graduate from Sunday School! You have not arrived spiritually, intellectually, or academically. You have to keep learning. Stay in the Word of God and be wise so that you can see what is soon to come. 
Second, we must be faithful. If ever there was a time to align your values with the Word of God, it is now! You need to align your finances to the Word of God and make sure the Gospel is preached to all the world. This is why we give and serve. Our purpose is to glorify Jesus and align with Christ! Let’s be faithful. 
Finally, we must be expectant. King Jesus is coming secretly for His saints. It can happen before we say, “Amen.” That would be fine with me. I'm ready. Are you ready? If Jesus came today, are you prepared? Are you confident that when Jesus appears, you will go to heaven with Him immediately? He will change you in the twinkling of an eye. 
You need to think about that. Do you know that you know that you know Him? Has there been a moment in your life when you have actually turned from sin and placed your faith in Christ? If you have not done this, you need to settle it once and for all, today. Regardless of where you have been, regardless of how you have served, regardless of who you are; you need to do it today.

Yes, I am ready for when Jesus comes to take me. It really excites me. I know I still have lots of work to do for Him in the mean time. There are so many lost souls around me and the world still 💔
