Matthew 24:42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

The summer Olympics is still several days away yet there is a lot of hype. The are doing biographies on the athletes, showing the event places, interviewing potential spectators, guessing about results and on and on. They are even on what they call “royal watch alert.” We have an even more event coming. We have a more “royal watch” to be alert for. The event we are waiting for will be the greatest event that ever was, is or will be. The royal One is the most royal Who ever was, is or will be. We are told to watch for it. We know what day the Olympics will start. We do not need to be on the alert. The athlets have done their work to be ready. We have work to do to be ready for the greatest event. We are told we must speak the Gospel to the ends of the earth. We are told all the world must hear of what Jesus did for us. Some of us think we must leave our neighborhoods and go to some remote country. Some are called to do that. But it may be our very next-door neighbor who has not heard what Jesus has done for them. Our question is are we sitting back and just waiting or are we working for God’s glory in obedience while we allow His Holy Spirit to “get us into shape” and watch for His return?
