John wrote the book of Revelation with passion and conviction. The final chapter of this book (and of the Bible) brings everything that preceded it to a focal point. Jesus will return and everything on earth will be impacted accordingly. Preparation through personal acceptance of Christ and His plan of salvation is the most important step one can take.
Throughout Revelation, John entourages believers to prepare for the end times. He convinced warnings with counsel to get us ready for all that is to come. John’s picture of the New Jerusalem should give us encouragement for holy loving and spiritual preparation.
We are ready for the return of Christ by accepting His invitation to salvation. As you think about Christ’s promise to return, what steps might you need to take to be ready?
