If You Knew Jesus Was Returning Tomorrow, What Would You Do Differently Today? /10

Be Prepared

Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. Matthew 25:13 NKJV

Since 1907, the motto of the Boy Scouts movement (and many Girl Scouts organizations) has been, “Be Prepared.” Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting movement, defined what it means to be prepared: “You are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty.” (Note 1)

If we add spirit to mind and body, we have a workable perspective on what it means to be prepared as a Christian. To be ready in body, mind, and spirit to do our duty.

Doing our Christian duty on a moment-by-moment basis is one thing for which we must be prepared. But there is an even greater reason for readiness. The any-moment return of Jesus Christ. Jesus told a parable about ten members of a bridal party who were awaiting the bridegroom’s cortege to arrive. Only five had made adequate preparation, while the other five, failing to do their duty, were locked out of the celebration. When Jesus said, “Watch therefore,” He was saying, “Be prepared — be about your duty until I return.”

We prepare for Jesus’ return in two ways. First, by surrendering to Christ as Savior and Lord. And second, by serving Him faithfully as we watch for His return.

Defend The Truth. Live The Faith. Advance The Kingdom.

Note 1: Sadly, Baden-Powell‘s Scouts have lost their way. Their motto, however, remains inviolable.
