“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.” (Luke 12:39). Having been assured of the Lord’s return, it is up to us to remain strong in faith and not be distracted by the things of this world. Let us not be disheartened by the negative connotations that the word preparation so often carries with it. Instead, let us rejoice in the truth that we are being welcomed into the kingdom of heaven to be with our Heavenly Father. For the happiness we know on Earth is nowhere near what our Lord has prepared for us in His kingdom. Let us walk by love, obedience and faith, knowing very well that Christ is coming, and He wants us to be with Him. Preparation. Are you ready?
