even as he is pure.
1 JOHN 3:3
Two little girls were talking in school one day, and one said to the other, "I hear the school board is making an inspection of our school this week." The other girl's desk was messy, so she said, "I'll clean my desk up tomorrow!"
The first girl asked, "But what if they come to our school today?" Her friend answered, "You know, I think I'll clean it up right now and keep it clean. That way it won't matter when they come!"
CHANGING OUR DAYS
Since we are people who look for Jesus Christ to come at any moment, we ought to be living clean lives for Him. For example, if you knew for certain that Jesus Christ were coming this afternoon, are there some things that you would get right in your life?
Would there be some changes that you would make? Would there be someone you might call this day and want to make up with before Jesus came? Would there be some literature in your home that you would like to dispose of?
CHRIST COULD COME ANY DAY
Are there some things that would change if you absolutely knew that this was the afternoon you were going to meet Jesus Christ?
You see, that's exactly what John meant when he said that those who have this hope (that is, the expectation of the coming of Jesus) purify themselves.
Hear your Children Oh Lord we are lifting our Praise to you.
Let singing like incense now rise to your throne. Come dwell in the place hollowed out for your Spirit. Come make of our praises your home Lord.
What a motivation to commit ourselves to living a holy life, once we fully realize that at any moment we might meet Jesus face to face!
