Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
Do not worry about when the moment will come. Whether it is at the end of the age or not, because for you who sleep, it will all be at the same moment, and just a moment away after death. Rather than worry about the when, think upon the Whom who is doing this. Look to Him and see that He will accomplish all that has been promised. In Him alone is all goodness.
Lord, this world scrambles to figure things out in a universe that is temporary. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would not live in this world only, but know that the moment will come when I shall be changed and truly be like Christ. Guide me, O Lord, now and always upon this narrow way to live into the life for which You have created and called me. Keep my eyes upon You.
Come, Holy Spirit, and in the power unleashed in this world through Christ, guide me along the upward path moment by moment and day by day until that time I stand before Christ face to face. Help me when I struggle that I would not falter and fail, but that I may learn and grow. In all things, lead me according to Your goodness to see through the false things of this world. Amen.
