Be Ready for Jesus

Once I visited the Statue of Liberty. While I was there, I took a picture of the buildings in New York City. Two weeks later, terrorists hit the World Trade Center. When I took the picture, the twin towers were standing strong. But by the time I developed the picture, the towers were gone.
The people who were working in the World Trade Center that day were doing their work as usual. Maybe that morning they said good-bye to their family. They never dreamed that would be the last time they would see each other on earth.
In our Bible verses, Jesus is talking about the time He will come and take His followers to live with Him forever. He said, “So always be ready. You don’t know the day your Lord will come” (verse 42a).
Make sure that you are ready for Jesus to return. Read the Bible, pray and obey His commands. Then you will be ready for Jesus.
