“Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” Revelation 3: 11
Jesus is coming again and sooner than we think! When we study God’s Word, He tells us what to look for so that we can know when His coming is near. And all those signs are already taking place right now! Many will say that they are not worried about it because they are a good person, so they are going to Heaven. Thus, they blindly go about their usual routines, not even thinking about God. But, don’t be deceived. It’s not enough to be a good person—we must know our Savior! We need to get our hearts ready to meet Jesus. Jesus. There’s no time to enjoy the evil pleasures of this world! We need to recommit our lives to God and also get serious about soul-winning, letting people know that Jesus loves them so much, He can’t imagine Heaven without them. And, oh, what a day of rejoicing it will be when Jesus comes in those clouds of glory, and we see our Savior face to face! The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 4: 5 (NCV), “God will praise each one of them.” What a wonderful promise! And God Himself will give us the praise—personally—for our crowns will be given one at a time. God Himself will look into each of our faces and say, “Well done, good and faithful servant. . . . Enter into the joy of your lord” (Matthew 25: 23, NKJV).
