Thought For The Day by Al Boulden

1 Thessalonians 4:16  “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.”

Those who question the Bible might doubt the return of Jesus. Objective research of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has made many a scoffer turn to faithful servant. Read any book of C.S. Lewis, Josh McDowell or Lee Strobel.  Each was a professed atheist, determined to disprove Christianity.  Their research led to logic on the side of salvation through grace, and they became warriors of the Faith.  That said, why should we not believe the “rest of the story.”  Jesus promised He will return .  What a glorious day it will be!  No one knows the exact day or time, but every one ought to live with anticipation that today may be the day. Are you ready?

Lord, thank You for prophecy fulfilled.  As we prepare for Christmas, increase our anticipation of Your return.  Keep us ready for the loud command.

Listen for the trumpet today.
