VOW: What If He Comes Back Tomorrow?

Verse of the Week:

Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.

Matthew 24:42-44

The advice in this quote from Theodore Epp is very thought provoking. If our Mentor and Savior died yesterday, we would be overcome with emotion that we had not spent more time with Him. If He rose today, we would be elated at the the second chance to spend more time with Him. If we knew He was returning tomorrow, we would be living our life in preparation for that reunion.

“Live as though Christ died yesterday, rose from the grave today, and is coming back tomorrow.”

~ Theodore Epp

Our verse of the week is a good companion to this quote because it instructs us to be ever mindful that HE IS coming back – we just don’t know when. We are told to be looking up, watching and waiting for Him, so that we are not caught off guard.

Our quote stated another way: live like someone who has died with Christ and to self, was baptized into His death and risen to new life in Him, and is in eager and fruitful anticipation of His return.

Live it out this week

What if He does come back tomorrow? Are you ready for His return? Will you hear “well done good and faithful servant?” Make adjustments while you still can. And look up for your redemption draws nigh.

What are some things you have been putting off changing or doing? What things has the Father been asking you to do or stop doing? Don’t grieve the Spirit. Act on those promptings. Now.

Let’s live like we are crucified with Christ, seeking the Father’s will as He did, and living every day in obedience to Him.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, since I confess that I believe in Your son Yeshua/Jesus and that He died, was buried, and rose again, help me live my life as a reflection of that confession. Amen.
