Today’s promise is 1 Thessalonians 5:9 NKJV:
“For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Paul encourages us here to stay sober and vigilant as we await the return of our Savior. It’s not a question of “if” Jesus will come back for us, but “when!” I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait! When He does return, I want Him to find me busy doing what He called me to do. I want to be wide awake, and ready to go! Why? Because, just as Paul says, Jesus is not coming back with a fist full of wrath for me. He’s coming with my reward! What about you? What reward is the Lord bringing for you?
Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of Your Precious Son! Thank You for giving me a reason to hope, a reason to praise–a reason to live! Help me glorify you with all that I am and all that I have, for it is all from You! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
Have a victorious day in the Lord!
