The Thief In The Night

Matthew 24:43-44

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Everybody dreams of growing old. Most say that is when they will be able to go to church. They say they will be retired and have nothing more to do. Sounds like the best times to serve God, right? What if you don’t make it to your old age? What if you plan on living in sin while young and then serving God when you are older and more mature, but while living in sin your life ends? It’s a morbid thought but it is one that you have to have. You don’t know when Jesus is going to make the call that your time is up. Just like you don’t know when a thief is going to break in until it happens. Your days are numbered and one day your life will end. I pray that when that time comes you are prepared to meet Jesus. I pray that no matter if you are 19 or 99 that you know when the son of man appears you are ready.
