Jesus warns us to be prepared for His final coming and the end of the world. In fact, we must be always prepared since we "cannot know the day" our Lord is coming (Mt 24:42).
Jesus describes our preparations in four ways:
Preparing for Jesus' final coming is not to be a last-minute preparation but the heart and focus of our whole lives.
|PRAYER:||Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!|
|PROMISE:||"You lack no spiritual gift as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will strengthen you to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus." –1 Cor 1:7-8|
|PRAISE:||St. Louis promoted knowing Jesus personally by starting perpetual adoration. He put his earthly kingship in the service of the King of Kings.|
