JUST BEFORE DAWN—READY?

A Devotional Thought

By Dr. Sylvan A. Lashley

Principal, Greater Atlanta Adventist Academy

for May 20, 2017

 

“For in such an hour as you think not, the Son of Man is coming” (Matt 24:44)

 

“Are you ready for Jesus to Come”, Neville Peters. https://youtu.be/ni5dpvtHtew

 

Life is filled with big moments whether there be birthdays, weddings, celebrations or graduations. It is the big moment that makes the news.  Yet it is that moment just before an important event that calls for the greatest care and preparation, for it is often the preparation, and the forethought that determine the success of the event.

    And so it is with the Second Coming—we are in the preparation phase. We know not when He will come, for the full truth is, that while we await “His coming in the Clouds”, the uncertainty of life can take us at any moment, and like the flip of a finger we no longer exist—our preparation has come to an untimely end.  People die suddenly and without notice—for them, Jesus has come, for there is no longer an opportunity to be ready.  Since we may have little warning about our own time, it behooves us therefore to live everyday as if it were our very last.

Are you ready for Jesus to come? Is your heart right with God and your fellowmen? We live our lives in benign and wanton disregard  for the dawn, without a thought of this spiritual morrow, yet preparation for this grand event is the “just before” phase in our lives.   “How shall we then live”, asks Francis Schaeffer in his book on the decline of western civilization.

But, I’ve got good news.  We don’t have to prepare all by ourselves. Not only is Jesus returning, but He is helping us to prepare for “That Dawn”. He is both the Returner and the Preparer, all at the same time. The “Just Before” phase is mixed with continuous grace and forgiveness, of divine protection and assurance, so my “just before” is filled with witnessing and praise; I live and work full of faith and courage and boldness at the workplace and the homeplace.  We are called out from the worldly pagan culture to be different, to be “a chosen generation, and a royal priesthood” (1 Peter 2:9), called to witness and to share, for we are not “of the world, but in the world”, alive to transform and to change.  We are not to settle for the least, but for the best. We must aim beyond the stars, lead and follow with vigor, verve, vivacity and live with the confidence of the coming dawn.  Our “just before” must be seasoned with grace and praise and with aplomb, not long faces, or the dreary, dismal darkness of despair.  Are you readying yourself for the dawn today?  Has your “Just before” been verified and certified? https://youtu.be/ni5dpvtHtew
