"Watching for the Return--!"
For goodness sakes---When Jesus told us to
watch, He wasn't talking about staying awake at night from 9pm to 3am
in the morning! God knows that we have to be prepared for each
day of life ---and part of that preparedness means getting a decent
night's sleep so we are not out driving to work the next day and
running over someone or falling asleep at the wheel! Being READY
does not mean losing sleeping and risking your health!!!
Jesus was speaking of a spiritual awakeness! Not allowing ourselves to
be lulled into a false sense of believing that the return is way off
into the future, so that we become pre-occupied with the cares of this
life! Remember, none of us are promised tomorrow! The going home for
any one of us could be tonight or tomorrow, rapture or not! Some people
have a tendency to get very impatient or angry at God for delaying the
rapture, but remember that God can take you at any time. We are always
just one heartbeat away from eternity!
