Jesus is coming again! We have His promise in John 14:1-6, the testimony of the angels in Acts 1:9-11, and many other promises in the rest of the Bible.
In 1 Thess. 1:9-10, the Apostle Paul commends the church at Thessalonica for their service to the Lord. Since we serve the “living and true God,” since He could come at any moment—we must be ready at all times—we must be active in His work at all times. Mission work and evangelism does not stop with conversion—the more we learn about Jesus and His Church and the Word of God—we will be mission-minded.
Jesus has told us to be waiting and watching for the time He will come back for us. Some in the New Testament were condemned because they were not active in the Lord’s service while waiting for His coming. That must never be said of us. He has provided much for us if we will only appropriate it. Let’s always seek to reach the lost and strengthen the saved.
