1 Thessalonians 5:2: “For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”
I was thirteen and left alone to watch my younger siblings and cousin. My parents had gone to dinner with my aunt and uncle.
While I was babysitting, thieves broke into my aunt and uncle’s house next door. They stole jewelry and appliances by breaking through a sliding glass door. Although we were only 50 yards away, my siblings, cousin and I heard and saw nothing. We weren’t exactly expecting anything to happen either.
Jesus will return to earth when most people are not looking. The majority of folks will be too busy to notice. As a result, many will be totally unprepared.
Wake up. Look up. Pray up. Don’t be caught off-guard when our Lord comes.
