Be Ready

BY PASTOR ROBERT JEWETT

Pastor Robert Jewett Word of Truth Community ChurchThe Bible is very clear that we need to “be ready” for Jesus’ return, as there will be no time upon His arrival to “get ready” (Matthew 24:37-39, 25:31-46). Upon His arrival, those who are living in obedience to Him will receive eternal life, but those who are living a life of disobedience to Him will receive his wrath and fury (John 3:36, Romans 2:6-8). We also know that he is coming at an hour that we do not expect, like a thief in the night (1 Thessalonians 5:2, 2 Peter 3:10). Thus, his coming could be at any time, so it is paramount that we know what it means to “be ready”.

The foundation to being ready is that we have repented from our sins and have placed our faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord (Mark 1:15, Acts 2:38, Romans 10:9-10). Once we have done that, we must understand that we are no longer darkness, but are now light in the Lord.  So we must begin to walk as children of light (Ephesians 5:8). The Bible gives much practical instruction on what it looks like to be walking in the light.

Please consider joining us as we continue to study through the book of Romans and looking at this practical instruction. For more information about Word of Truth Community Church, visit http://www.wordoftruthcc.com.
