It May Be Today

"In my Father's house are many rooms ... I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go ... I will come back and take you to be with me."1

I remember reading a few years ago about a strange occurrence which I was informed took place in Haiti. A man reported to a gas (petrol/fuel) station owner that he had picked up a hitchhiker who was sitting in the back seat when, as they were driving along, suddenly blurted out, "Jesus is coming! Jesus is coming!" Whereupon the man looked around and his passenger had disappeared.

Even more strange was the response from the gas station owner who said, "You're the third person who has told me the exact same story."

Whether this incident was a strange coincidence, the figment of someone's imagination, or something supernatural I cannot be certain. But of one thing we can be sure, Jesus is coming again. He himself promised he would.

Christ's first coming is an indisputable fact of history. His second coming is just as certain. He said he would come when we least expect it. The important thing is to be ready by receiving him as our personal Lord and Savior. He is coming again. It may be today. If so, are you ready?

For help, be sure to read "How to Be Sure You're a Real Christian" at: http://www.actsweb.org/christian.

Remember, too, "Only one life, 'twill soon be past. Only what's done for Christ will last."

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, Thank you for the wonderful hope you have given us that Jesus is coming again so we can all be together forever in heaven. I pray today for all who haven't received you as their Lord and Savior. Please use me to help share your gospel message of salvation to others around the world, which is now possible with e-Mail and the Internet. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

1. Jesus in John 14:2-3 (NIV).
