Would You Be Ashamed if Jesus Came Back Today?
While scrolling through my Facebook feed, I came across this question: “If Jesus came back today, would you be ashamed of where He found you?”
Jesus said in Matthew 24:36, “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.”
We all go about our lives and actions and often don’t think about the consequences.
However, how would we act if we looked up and Jesus found us:
- Using that foul language
- Taking that item that isn’t ours
- In that precarious or compromising situation
- Telling a lie
- Using that substance
- Of that place we’re not supposed to be
- Committing a number of other sins
We never know when Jesus is returning, but we can live each day as if it were the day of his return. Then we will have nothing to be ashamed of when we stand before him.
After all in Hebrews 14:13, we are told “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”
So, let me ask you “If Jesus came back today, would you be ashamed of where He found you?”
