What Must We Be Ready For?


In Thessalonians 4, we read that we must be ready. But, do we understand that which we much be ready for?

As Christians we are called - called to embrace the poor, to minister to the ill, to show mercy to those who do not show mercy to us. We are not rejected. And yet our churches are beginning to look more and more like the world, where money and power are valued over faith, love, and kindness. We must not remain asleep. We must wake to share our Christian values, and to provide for those who have no way to repay us.

I am reminded of Psalm 127:

A song of ascents. Of Solomon.

Unless the Lord builds the house,
the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the guards stand watch in vain.
In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for he grants sleep to[a] those he loves.
Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their opponents in court.

Let us meditate on this, praying to the Spirit to reveal God's grace for us.
