As Jesus explains in Luke 12:35-59, we should be ready for His return at all times because it will be when we least expect it (v. 40). If we knew the Lord would be returning within 30 days, we might be more disciplined in the use of our time. We would be paying attention and getting things in order. Like taking an exam, we would prepare in advance by making notes and studying the material.
For a Christian, it is no different, we should study and get ready for each day by feeding our soul with thoughts of a believer. We should use the abilities and opportunities God has given us. Then constantly evaluate each day to make sure we are on the right path.
This day with God, remember He’s not distant but near. Stay focused on His presence. This day, He may shout to us in a thunderstorm or paint a beautiful rainbow in the sky. His guiding principles will help in every activity throughout our day.
