Living Like Men Looking For Their Lord!
Dr. R. A. Torrey says: “The imminent return of our Lord is the great Bible argument for a pure, unselfish, devoted, unworldly, active life of service. In much of our modern preaching we urge people to live a holy life and work diligently because death is swiftly coming, but that is never the Bible argument. The Bible argument always is, Christ is coming! Be ready when He comes!
“This leads inevitably to the question, ‘What constitutes readiness for the coming of Christ?’ Answer: Separation from the world’s indulgence of the flesh, from the world’s immersion in the affairs of this life, and intense daily earnestness in prayer is the first part of preparation for the Lord’s return.”
Our Savior says: “Pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36). God has not revealed the date of Christ’s coming in order that we may always be watchful; nor has He revealed the standard of holiness in order that we may be always pressing on to perfection.
