August 3: Ready

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 24:42-44

On this date in 1979, more than 51,000 mourners attended a memorial service at Yankee Stadium for Thurmond Munson. The Yankee Captain had died the previous day when a plane he was piloting crashed 1,000 feet short of the runway at Canton-Akron Airport.

Today’s text reminds us that Jesus warned his followers to be ready for His return. We don’t know when Jesus is coming back, but the Bible insists that He will return for God’s people. We need to be ready for Jesus to come: the only thing we can know about his return is that it will happen when we least expect it! Being ready every minute, as if Jesus is coming back in the next moment, will ensure that we really are ready. Life is too short for us to wait until later to get things right with God. We are not even guaranteed tomorrow.

  1. Would you be ready if Jesus came back five minutes from now?

  2. If not, what changes would you need to make?

  3. Why is it important to live lives in readiness for His return?

May we all be ready by the way we live each moment for Jesus to return. We do not know when. We do know, however, to be ready!
