What would you do if your boss or your pastor was coming to your house for dinner tonight? You wouldnt wait until the last minute to prepare - youd want to have plenty of time to make sure everything was presentable and in order, because you want to show your guest the appropriate level of respect.
In a similar way, believers need to prepare their hearts and lives for Christs return. Our sanctified lives need to reflect the joy and anticipation of the return of our Savior.
Last time we were together, John MacArthur was explaining from the gospel of Luke how our lives need to be humble gifts back to God-- gifts that reflect the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit. John was pointing us to four ways we can spiritually prepare for the Lords return.
Lets rejoin his message now, and take another look at The Believers Gift to Christ.
