“Watch, therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord comes.”
– Matthew 24:42
There is an old fable of three devils finishing their apprenticeship. Satan came to review their progress before they were sent out to roam the earth. Satan asked them what their strategy was to tempt and ruin men.
The first said, “I will tell them there is no God.” “That will not delude many, for they know that the is a God.”
The second said, “I will tell them there is no hell.” “You will deceive no one that way; men know even now that there is a hell for sin.”
The third devil said, “I will tell them there is no hurry.” “Ah! A good strategy!” Satan said, “you will ruin many souls.”
One of the greatest dangers to our readiness for the day of Christ’s coming is our belief we still have time to prepare. With this attitude, we slow down and take detours. But Jesus warns us to be watchful.
Are you ready? Stay awake and watch!
May God bless you!
