349 – If Christ Should Come Today

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye May be accounted worthy to escape all these things
that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Luke 21:36.

Christ bids us watch, that we May be accounted worthy to escape the things that are coming on the earth. It is of the greatest importance that we heed this warning. The enemy of all
righteousness is on our track, seeking to lead us to forget God.
We should be filled with joy at the thought of Christ’s soon appearing. To those that love His
appearing He will come without sin unto salvation. But if our minds are filled with thoughts of earthly things, we cannot look forward with joy to His appearing.

“If I knew that Christ were coming in a few years,” one says, “I should live very differently.”

But if we believe that He is coming at all, we should live just as faithfully as if we knew that He
would appear in a few years. We cannot see the end from the beginning, but Christ has provided
sufficient help for every day in the year.

All we have to do with is this one day. Today we must be faithful to our trust. Today we must love
God with all the heart and our neighbor as ourselves. Today we must resist the temptations of the enemy, and through the grace of Christ gain the victory. Thus we shall watch and wait for Christ’s coming. Each day we should live as if we knew that this would be our last day on this earth. If we knew that Christ would come
tomorrow, would we not crowd into today all the kind words, all the unselfish deeds, that we could? We should be patient and gentle, and
intensely in earnest, doing all in our power to win souls to Christ….

I urge you to turn your thoughts from worldly things and center them on the things of eternity.
Christ has placed everlasting life within your reach, and He has promised to give you help in
every time of need…. We should never rest satisfied with present attainments. If we put mind
and heart into the work of reaching God’s ideal for us, if we go to Christ, the mighty helper, for aid, He will give us the very assistance that we need. He will bestow on us the very power that will enable us to be victorious in the struggle
against evil.
