Running with Jesus


Luke 12:35-38 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

     Be prepared for the Lord's return. "Oh, I have heard that all my life!"  Many ignore the warning to be prepared. The Lord will return one day because God does not lie. He is being patient for souls to be saved.  Being prepared also works in another way, you may meet Him before the return! You may die at the blink of an eye or in a heartbeat! We must live and be prepared.

     Mom used to say, “If Jesus came back would you want Him to find you doing that?”,big question! Mom wouldn't go anywhere her kids could not go! She preached Jesus return and believed it was so close! I thank God for a mom who taught and helped me be prepared for His return or my home going! It is our job as mom's to help prepare our kids for His return! 

     Jesus’ life was about doing His Father's business. Remember at age 12 Mary and Joseph thought they had lost Jesus and found Him at the temple. What did He respond to them, you should have known I would be about my Father's business. Helping people prepare is the Father's business! 

     If Jesus were to return would you be ashamed of where He found you? We must not put ourselves in a position we would be ashamed for Him to find us!   We should be living a sincere life, ready to witness, not worrying but trusting, giving generously, not lazy, and becoming more like Christ! When we greet Him we will be joyful, grateful, and thankful! 


Father, help us pick the best road to run down as we race through life! We want to live as children who honor You and make You proud! We are looking for You any minute! What a day it will be when we see You face to face! All the things and cares of this world are so small when compared to Your kingdom living! This might be the day, look up toward the Eastern sky!   I thank You for a mom who helped me prepare!


Oil and vinegar, tomorrow!
