If you knew for a fact that you were going to die, or that Jesus was coming again, one month from today, how would you begin living your life differently?
- Would you pray more?
- Would you work harder to do good deeds?
- Would you resolve to crush lingering vices?
- Would you forgive enemies?
- Would you show greater love toward people in your life?
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour when the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.”
This is much is certain: someday we will die, or we shall live to see Jesus return ‘at an unexpected hour.’ So, let us commit ourselves by the grace of God to living in such a way now that if someone were to ask us what we would do differently if the end of the world or the end of our lives were near, we could honestly answer, “Nothing. Nothing at all.”
