As the Christmas season draws closer we can look forward to celebrating the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. We don’t know for certain what day Jesus was born, but we do know He was born, He died and rose again!
For many of us there may be significant and important dates. Our own birthday, anniversary, important historical dates that evoke very confronting memories like September 11. Or perhaps for us it is the date that a loved one passed away.
There is one date that we will never know but as Christians we should be focussed on that date, more than any other. Which date am I referring to? The one that only our Father in heaven knows, the date of Christ’s return.
We do not know the day or hour of His return, but he will come like a thief in the night and we must be ready. If we like to get ready for important dates like Christmas, how much more should we be ready for the return of Jesus?
