10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. 2 Peter 3:10
Many have speculated when Jesus would return. People think they’re wise enough to outsmart God. What a fool’s errand that is. Some have tried to predict the week or the month since no one knows the day or the hour (Matthew 24:36)! They’re missing the point of this verse and the verse in Matthew entirely. The point is to be ready for His return. Period.
Unfortunately, many have been disappointed to the point of selling and sacrificing all to be ready on that day. They too are missing the point.
It’s about getting our lives and our affairs in order. It’s about loving people more than we do now. It’s about sacrificing for the kingdom.
That day will come soon. Are we ready?
