Commands of Christ: 81

Be alert for My return.

 “Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day catch you by surprise like a trap. For that day will assault everyone who lives on the face of the earth.  Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:34-36

“Therefore, keep watch, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”  Matthew 25:13

Stay ready.  Pray for strength.  Be focused.  Guard against distraction.  Pay attention.  These are instructions from Jesus.  This life is preparation for the next.  Don’t forget it.
