And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:37)
We cannot ignore the fact that these are the very last of the last days. The signs are more evident than ever before. The return of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent. The Master of the house is about to return. The question we must ask is, “Am I ready? If not, what must I do to be ready?”
The answer is simple. We are to watch. We are to watch that we keep His commandments. We are to watch for our spouses, our families, friends, communities, and ourselves. We are to watch our priorities. We are to watch for false Christs, and false prophets. We are to watch with great anticipation, great hope, and joy. This is not a time for sleeping. We must be alert and ready. However, it is also not a time for anxiety or fear. This is the time to lift up our heads and rejoice; for our redemption is drawing near.
