When speaking of His eventual return to judge the world and transport the church to heaven, Jesus had only one question expressed in Luke 8:8, "…when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?" When applied in personal terms this question becomes, "When Jesus returns, will He find you faithful?"
The Bible teaches us that the return of Christ and the end of the world will come suddenly and without any warning (Luke 12:40; Rev. 3:3). When this happens it won't be those who…
- used to be faithful sometimes faithful
- going to be faithful
- like to be faithful
- should have been faithful…
- that are going to be saved,
It's those who are faithful who will be invited to join Him in the heavenly kingdom.
Now the only way to be faithful when He comes in the future is to be faithful today because He might come today! Ask yourself the question, "Am I faithful today?" If you can answer yes then you're ready for Him; if you answer no or can't be sure then you're not.
Don't let the sun go down without doing what you need to do in order to be found faithful should Jesus come today. Don't put it off until tomorrow because there may not be a tomorrow left to answer this important question.
