Prove Yourselves Ready….

Keep on the watch, therefore, because you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
“But know one thing: If the householder had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have kept awake and not allowed his house to be broken into. 
On this account, you too prove yourselves ready, because the Son of man is coming at an hour that you do not think to be it.
================================
How do you view the worsening trend in human affairs? Many are indifferent, even callous, to distressing events of the day. The world’s influential and intellectual men do not discern the meaning of “the signs of the times”; neither have religious leaders given proper guidance in this matter.

But Jesus admonished his followers: “Keep on the watch, therefore, because you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.”  Jesus here encourages us not only to be watchful but to “keep on the watch.” To keep on the watch, we must remain alert and vigilant. This requires more than simply acknowledging that we are living in the last days, more than recognizing that times are hard. We must have firm conviction that “the end of all things has drawn close.” Only then will our watchfulness take on a sense of urgency.

Jesus admonished Christians everywhere: “Prove yourselves ready.”  We should always be ready. Of course, we cannot engage in theocratic activities all day long every day. Besides, none of us know what we will be doing the moment the great tribulation begins. Some may be working in a field or caring for domestic chores.
