Do you remember the command to prepare the way of the Lord? It was given to John the Baptist. He was to prepare the way of the Lord before His earthly ministry. It has also been given to Christians. We are to prepare the way of the Lord before He returns. We ought to not only prepare ourselves. We need to help others prepare to meet Him as well.
At this time of year, we are often found preparing. Well, some people wait until the last minute to panic shop for presents and food, but people like me have been planning and preparing for Christmas for months.
Do we put that sort of dedication into the coming of Christ? His return is much more important, more profound than Christmas.
As you are busy rushing around preparing for the holidays, take time, make plans to prepare for the Second Coming of the Lord. 'Even so come Lord Jesus.'
