EVER VERY READY

 
"You know as well as I that if the head of the house knew when the thief was coming he would not let him break into his house. Be on guard, therefore." —Luke 12:39-40
 

People install locks on their doors and windows. They have fences, guard dogs, and security systems because of the possibility that someone might break into their houses. What if you knew exactly when someone would break into your house? Would you be ready for him? That is how ready we must be for Jesus' return. Moreover, we must be this ready all the time, for He will come when we "least expect Him" (Lk 12:40).

To be always very ready for Jesus' return, we must be "faithful, farsighted" servants of Jesus, busy working to dispense rations of "grain in season" (Lk 12:42), that is, feeding people physically and especially spiritually. "Not on bread alone is man to live but on every utterance that comes from the mouth of God" (Mt 4:4). May Jesus find us at His return feeding people with His word because we always feed people with His word.

This book, One Bread, One Body, is a "square meal" spiritually. It contains spiritual food. Share what you receive from reading this book, especially from reading the Scriptures quoted or referred to in this book. Dispense the ration of grain. Jesus is coming soon. He may be coming now. Dispense the ration of grain.

 
Prayer: Father, I love Jesus so I will feed His sheep (Jn 21:17).
Promise: "In Christ and through faith in Him we can speak freely to God, drawing near Him with confidence." —Eph 3:12
Praise: Dispensing his ration of grain, Joseph has spent his time and talents in quiet service to the Lord by writing for and editing One Bread, One Body.
