Jesus is coming back to take us with Him (Jn 14:3). No one can know the exact day or hour of Jesus' return (Mt 24:42). He will return at the time we least expect (Mt 24:44). Therefore, we must be always ready. We are ready for Jesus' second and final coming when:
Are you ready for Jesus to come back now? Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!
Prayer: Jesus, come back now or as soon as possible.
Promise: "May the Lord increase you and make you overflow with love for one another and for all." —1 Thes 3:12
Praise: St. Monica was in a state of readiness in awaiting her Lord and prayed constantly until her husband, son, and grandson were converted.
