Be prepared…

Jesus makes it clear that when he comes again, he will come in judgment.

‘For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.’ (Acts 17:31)

Don’t be so wrapped up in materialism that you are unprepared for his return.

Why not bow to King Jesus now, and enter into his kingdom? Pray to him now and ask him to forgive you and take control of your life.

What about you? You need to listen to what God says in the Bible. ‘Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.’ (1 John 5:12)
