Matthew 24:42-44 (NIV) 42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 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. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

During the thanksgiving holiday I was able to spend time with my grandchildren, and participate in the game of hide and seek.  This is probably a familiar game, in which one person would count to ten and then tell those who are hiding, “ready or not here I come”.

Jesus Christ is coming back to take all of those who are saved to heaven.  We don’t know when but we know that he is coming.  If we want to go back with him, we must be saved (born again). This is not a game but a promise.   Not being ready will not delay Christ from coming back again.

Be prepared for the second coming of Christ!
