3 Things Every Believer Needs to Do Before Christ’s Return

Today’s guest post comes to us from JB Cachila for Christianity Today.

The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back real soon, at a time we don’t really know. What we do know is that He’s coming back and while He hasn’t returned yet, we can still do something that would make Him happy.

With that, I would like to encourage all of us who are longing for His return to make the most of our stay here by enjoying our earthly lives in doing His will. To help you with that, here are some things you should not miss out on doing before Christ comes back.

1.) Preach the Gospel to everyone you know. This is so exciting. As we preach the Gospel and make disciples of Christ, we get to become His lips, hands and feet for those who don’t know Him yet. And as we do that, He goes with us too!

2.) Co-labor with Christ in the work of salvation. Jesus promised that as we go and preach the Gospel to every creature, we will get to see signs and wonders. These signs are proof that He is alive and is with us as we go and do what He said according to Matthew 28. When we obey Him, the signs show that we are co-laboring with Him in bringing the Good News to all.

3.) Love your fellow believers in Christ. Lastly, we should grow in our love for fellow believers. Our lives are indeed short, but it will be very significant if we show love for God and the people He loves. Because we love Him, we also love our fellow believers – and the love that we have for each other reveals God to those who don’t know Him.
