Matthew 24:44 NIV So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Preparation is important to me when I know that a special guest is coming to my home. The preparation may take a lot of thought and time.  Several years ago I had a family member who was coming to my home. I did not know the exact time the guest would arrive, but they had informed me of the day they anticipated arriving.

Matthew speaks of being ready for Christ’s return although we do not know the exact hour he will return.  There is preparation that we should do in order to be ready.  Are you ready for Christ’s return?  If you are ready then His return should not take you by surprise.

Christ the Messiah came to the earth to be the atonement so that anyone who believes in Him should be saved.  This demonstration of love made it possible for everyone to have the opportunity to be prepared for His second coming.

Are you prepared?
