But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark. Matthew 24:37-38
What are your plans for today? Whatever they are go about your day with expectancy of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are teaching school, keep doing it. If you are a clerk, keep working. Perhaps the CEO of a company. Keep leading and directing. If you are a stay home mom, keep raising your children for the Lord.
For all of us who name the name of Jesus we should be 'preachers' of sorts and be 'preaching on' until Jesus returns. Not everyone will accept this and some may mock you,but our job is to share God's love with those in our circle of influence each and every day. We are not to be ashamed of Jesus. Bow your head even in public and thank Him for your daily bread. Many in the world are hungry. Don't be embarrassed someone is looking cause they probably are. In Mark 8:38 it says "If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when He comes in His Father's glory with the Holy angels."
Go now and remember you are His witness so be able to share about your joy if someone asks. If you don't know Him you can stop right now and ask Him to take control of your life.
PRAYER: Give me your strength to not be a coward when it comes to sharing you with others. Forgive me if I have ever acted ashamed. In Jesus' name. Amen.
