The coming of the Lord can be anytime, so what kind of persons should we be? According to our focal scripture passage for today, this should characterize our life: First, we should be alert. Do not go asleep in your faith. Realize that through God’s mercy his compassions are new and fresh every morning (Lamentations 3:22). Second we should be sober, meaning not under the influence of anything that would obscure our awareness and readiness for God.
1 Peter 4:7
“The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.”
