Here is a bit of truth that struck me as I was reading this morning:
And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming. 1 John 2:28
We know from prophecy that the return of Jesus is close. That information gives us more reason to stay under his cover and follow his commands. Imagine feeling ashamed rather than the feeling of joy in his presence because of our sin. I want the feeling of elation to overwhelm me and not fear him because I've made worldly affairs more important than him. Hold him close, worship him with all your heart, and don't let the day's distractions draw you in and cause you to become separated from our one true love, Jesus.
