In tune for the Kingdom

Posted: February 23, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship, The Christian Life

Wherever you may live, and whatever may be your trials; however great your difficulties, and however small your helps; nothing should prevent your aiming at the highest standard, to behave like one who believes that Christ is coming again! You should resolve, by God’s help, to live so that the day of Christ shall find you needing as little change as possible! You should seek to have . . .

your tastes so heavenly,

your affections so spiritual,

your will so subdued,

your mind so unworldly —

that when the Lord appears, you may be thoroughly in tune for His kingdom!

~ J.C. Ryle

    I LOVE that great Biblical idea! When my kids were little – and they came home from school, and found me busily cleaning the house, they always asked me “Who’s coming?” Comparatively, if I expect Jesus Christ any day now, I WILL be doing something that shows this expectation in my life! I can’t wait for His coming – what a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see! Bye, I’ve got “stuff” to do!
