“Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51).Text — 1 Corinthians 15:47-51
How did you feel when you transited from primary to high school? The change to a new environment, new friends, new teachers and new subjects must have brought you excitement. But a greater change is coming! Glory! Hallelujah! We shall be changed. All pains, fears, failure, sickness, hunger, lack and all sorts of problems shall come to an end, for we shall be changed. Rapture, which is the catching away of the saints to meet with Christ in the sky, is the hope of all believers. And it will happen suddenly and unannounced as recorded in our text.
At the rapture, all born-again youths will be transformed to meet the Lord in the air, while all sinning youths and careless believers will remain here on earth to face horrible persecutions from the Antichrist. How prepared are you for the coming change? To qualify for this great and glorious event, as a sinner you must repent of all your sinful habits, confess and forsake them. Ask for grace to daily overcome all forms of temptations. Born again youths must be steadfast in holy living.
It will happen suddenly
How prepared are you for the glorious change ahead?
Prayer for today
