Dear Boys and Girls,

Mr and Mrs Matthews' oldest son was in the army. Every day they looked for him to come home. "I'll be home on leave in just a few days" his telegram had said. Every day Mr and Mrs Matthews left a light in the window. Even in the middle of the night, when everything was dark, this lamp continued to shine. Finally their boy came home. As he walked up the street he saw the little light in the window. Mr and Mrs Matthews had been waiting for their son. They expected him and looked for him every day. They were prepared for his coming.

The Lord Jesus tells us in his word that He is coming. He said "I will come again". Christian people are ready for Christ's return. They are looking for Him, just as Mr and Mrs Matthews looked for their son. But some people do not seem to care about the Lord's coming. When Jesus comes they will be left behind, for they will not be ready for Him. Unless people are saved when Jesus comes they will be left behind.

Jesus warned us to be read, for He is coming at a time when the world will not expect Him. If Jesus should come today, would you be ready to go with Him. The only way to be ready is to have Him as your Saviour.

Boys and girls just think to yourself: "If Jesus were to come before this day is finished, will I be ready to go with Him?" What an important question that is, and what would your answer be? I trust that all of you as you think of this question will earnestly consider where you stand with regard to Jesus and His free gift of Salvation for those who ask for it.

Here is a verse from the Bible for you to memorise and I trust take as a promise from Jesus –

"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am there you may be also"
