A Red Letter Day (Fifth Easter)

Jesus said, “I am the way (road), also the truth, also the life. No one gets to God except through me”.
(John 14: 6)

Do a Google search of May 22, 2011 and you’ll find some interesting things scheduled for the day: Elvis Costello in concert in Madison Square Garden, Bill Clinton to give a speech in Montenegro, the day the world will end, Usher playing in Omaha. Hey, wait a minute! May 22, 2011 is the day that the world was supposed to end! Not sure how we missed more advanced notice on that.

Apparently one Christian preacher has been trying to warn us, and Jesus also told us that he would come back for us. It just wasn’t clear that he had an exact date in mind.

Instead of panicking, we’d be wise to follow Jesus’ advice and let not our hearts be troubled. The hour and day of our deaths or Jesus’ Second Coming are not important; what’s more important is being faithful. Love the Lord, do God’s works, be a beacon to those who are shrouded in the darkness of fear, disease, and despair, and there will be a place for you in God’s house whenever moving time comes.
