The Thessalonians had been told that God would come back to earth and all believers, dead and alive would go to Heaven with Him. What they hadn’t realised was that it might be a very long time before it happened. So here we have Paul explaining to the people that nobody knows when God will come but in the meantime they all need to ready, just in case.
Fast forward 2,000 years and we’re still waiting. Are we ready? Are we a believer? Well, if we accept God’s love, live according to his teaching and share his love with others then we will join God in Heaven on that day.
Sounds easy doesn’t it? But a lifetime seems like a long time to keep being good. God knows that. He wants us to succeed, to be happy, to be faithful to Him and His help is there for the taking.
Dear God, help us to live each day as would want us to, so that we will be ready to join you in Heaven when earth ends. Amen.
Tomorrow the sun will rise and set…. unless God has other plans. Will you be ready?
