Be Ready - March 31, 2016

The Bible says, “The Word became human and lived here on earth among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.” (John.1:14)

The operative word here being among. He donned the costliest of robes, a human body. He took a common name—Jesus—and made it holy. He could have lived over us or away from us. But he didn’t. He lived among us!

And to us all he shared the same message, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me. . .I will come back and take you to be with me so that you may be where I am” (John. 14:1,3).

Live with an ear for the trumpet and an eye for the clouds. And when he calls your name, be ready. You will look up, and he will reach down and take you home. . . when Christ comes!
