Are You Ready for Christ’s Return?

“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”

1 John 2:18

Ponder This

We are living on the edge of the last days—that period between Jesus’ ascension and His return. He could come at any moment. The return of Christ is imminent. It is important to recognize this about Bible prophecy—there is no sign that we’re waiting for. There is no event in history that we’re waiting for. Jesus Christ could have come back three weeks after He ascended into Heaven. And He may come back this afternoon. The entire Bible teaches that we’re on the very edge, on the very brink, and therefore we should be yearning for His return and not yawning. We should be ready for the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is promised, it is imminent, and it could happen at any moment. Are you ready?

  • How often do you think about Jesus’ return?
  • Does your life give evidence that you truly believe in this promised reality? How so?

Practice This

Take time to read Matthew 25. Consider what it would look like for you to live each day ready for the return of Christ.
