Remember then what you received and heard; obey it, and repent. If you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. (Revelation 3:3 NRSV)

I remember a story of a grandfather who took his grandsons with him when he went to the church to do some Christmas decorating. The two boys began to race around the sanctuary and their grandfather scolded them, "You shouldn't do that, boys. This is God's house." The 4-year-old looked up innocently and said, "Doesn't God like little boys Granddaddy?" With a shrug and a wave of the hand, the grandfather signaled the boys to carry on with what they were doing."

Are you ready for Christmas? Are you ready for all the hustle and bustle? Are you ready for the excitement of little boys and girls? Are you ready for Jesus Christ?

Today, we are being called to be ready for whenever Jesus comes, because we will not have any warning of when we will be called to go home to God.

Lord Jesus, live in me, so that I will be ready for your coming. In Jesus' name, Amen.
