Daily Digest #233

You also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. —Matthew 24:44

Most of us take the passage above as a scary warning that we tend to ignore and live our lives the way we feel is right -- carefree and comfortable. We get ourselves confused with reality and truth. We may even think it's ridiculous, even those who claim to believe Jesus and death and resurrection. Some of us constantly doubt, thinking no one really knows what lies ahead... Well, having said that, I think the main point of the passage is simply to do the best we can in every waking day: to allow Him to mold us, learning and growing from every encounter with different people or circumstances; and to allow ourselves to be closer to Him, humbly submitting to His will.

God is trying to build a bridge between Him and each of us. I think the only question is, are we willing to meet Him halfway?

For this, let us pray. May we take faith and courage to make this decision today: to commit to building our bridge with the Lord. Should that day come when Jesus shows us His face, may our bridges be complete and strong enough for the crossing. You have a wonderful day ahead. Pray always.
