He Is Also Coming Back

All of us who love him should make a commitment to think about Jesus always. When our minds stray, an alarm should go off, sirens should scream and red lights should flash to remind us to bring our minds back to Jesus.

As we all know, daily life is becoming more dangerous. While living in fear is not God's desire for us, we can no longer be assured that we will never encounter a fatal situation. We don't know when we could unexpectedly leave this earth. While I know that I am saved through the Shed Blood of Our Dear Savior, Jesus Christ, that is not enough for me. 

Should I leave unexpectedly in any way or should he return before I leave this earth, I want my mind to be as closely upon him as it can be at that moment. I don't want my mind consumed by the cares of this world, desires and distractions when the Word tells me that My Savior will come back in the twinkling of an eye.

During this Easter Day celebration, let us remember that yes, Jesus has risen. Yes, Jesus is alive but he also is coming back and is worthy of our daily thoughts.  

For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. (I Thessalonians 5:2)

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (I Corinthians 15:51-52)

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
