He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
03/31/09 “Are we there, yet?” Many of us have heard this phrase from the back seat of the car during a trip. All of us have said it from the back seat of our parents’ car at some point. Maybe you’re saying it right now! The Bible says that those who look forward to the appearance of Christ will be rewarded. Are you looking forward to it? Or are you hoping that He won’t return for a little while so that you can accomplish some earthly goals? Or are you wanting just enough time to see that friend or loved one come to believe in Jesus? It is not for us to know the time of Christ’s return. We must be prepared at any time like the wise virgins who had enough oil for their lamps. How do we do that? Spend time with Him, now through the Word and prayer so that He may carry on the good work He has begun in us.
