Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Matthew 24:42-44

How do you deal with something you know is coming, but you’re not sure of the exact timing? Be prepared!

Just like we bring in fuel before bad weather or tie things down in high wind months, we know the spiritual truth of Jesus’ coming is inevitable so we take all the proper steps to be ready. You know exactly how much you believe in Jesus and his promise to return based on your own readiness for that day.

It will be a surprise when he comes to get us, but we can’t afford to let it be a shock!
