Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. (Mt 25:13 NKJV)
Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. (Mt 24:42)
The Bible verses above remind us to be aware of the return of the Lord—to have a watchful frame of mind and heart. It’s a good idea to watch and to be expectantly, eagerly awaiting our Savior’s return. Here are two good tips for doing that:
- In holiness, we prepare ourselves for His coming;
- Meanwhile, we continue to preach the Good News (gospel) to all mankind.
The Lord instructed us to be holy (Lev 11:45; 19:2; Nmb 15:40; Rom 12:1; 1 Pet 1:15, 16), because we serve a holy God.
In obedience to the Lord, we serve the Kingdom by sharing the gospel with everyone—right until the moment of Jesus’ return. Lastly, we want to maintain a vital, loving relationship with the Lord Jesus!
