Did you see the headlines? Blood has been shed. People are dying. There is unrest, uncertainty and unkindness everywhere. Political candidates are tearing each other down, while aggressive nations are building up their arsenals. Children are starving and the rich have more than ever before. People are moving so fast, they don’t have time to stop and listen or even really think. The planet is sick and tired. The world is full of hate, hurt and hopelessness. And we can’t fix it. That won’t work. People smarter and more compassionate than us have tried and failed. Earth is a terminal patient. No matter where you turn, you can’t get away from this sad, broken world... or can you? You see, it won’t always be this way. One day the blood will stop pouring. One day the debates will end. Every mouth will be filled and every tear will be dried. One day the drama, destruction and devastation will come to a sudden and abrupt halt. Why? Because, one day Jesus will come back. We don’t know when, but we know it’s going to happen. It will happen all of a sudden - in an instant. One minute the world will be as it is - as we know it - full of strife, pain and trouble and then, Bam! He’ll be here! He will show up with a shout that every ear will hear. He will change everything, in a moment. He’s going to wipe every tear from every eye and make everything new. Thing is, since we don’t know when this will happen, the only way to be ready for it is to get ready now. Live every single moment waiting for that final, world-rending shout of the Savior.
