Thinking Deeply …
Have you ever counted down the days to something exciting? Maybe it was a birthday party, a special trip, or even the beginning of summer. Often the anticipation of the event creates an energy and excitement in our lives. We think about it. We tell others about it. We look forward to it. The event of Jesus’ return to earth will be more spectacular than anything else we’ve ever experienced. Live every day as though Jesus is returning. Think about it. Tell others about it. Look forward to it.
Guard yourself against those who will try to influence you to turn away from God. Rely on the Holy Spirit to guide you in the right direction.
