One Guarantee

I talked to my friend, Diane, at work. We talked about the unexpected things that happen in our lives. Diane and I discussed people who had died suddenly or tragedies that had happened to our friends.

Finally, I said, “Well, there are no guarantees in life. We don’t know what will happen to us tomorrow.” Then I thought about what I said, and I realized that I was wrong. There is one guarantee in life. That guarantee is the promise of salvation through Jesus and eternal life with God.
Our Bible Reading today tells us that we should be ready for Jesus to come again. God has guaranteed (promised) that someday Jesus will return. He will take His followers to live forever with Him. God has also promised that the people who do not love and obey Him will be punished.
We do not know what will happen tomorrow. But we can know that Jesus will come again – maybe He will come tomorrow. I hope you will be ready when Jesus comes.
