2020 is Good for More than Vision

What is your eyesight according to the eye doctor?  Need correction?  With today marking the new year and the calendar turning to 2020, be encouraged that 2020 is good for more than eyesight only.  What do you want to see in your life in 2020?  Do you have any goals or dreams that you would like to see the Lord achieve in your life this year?

With more than near-term thinking, could 2020 be the year of the rapture?  Could Jesus return to the clouds of this sphere and take Gospel believing Christians to Heaven?  It could happen.

Jesus says in Luke 12:40, Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.  Could 2020 be the year?  Theologian Charles Ryrie writes of this verse: “There is no place for slothful ease in the life of a believer while waiting or the return of the Lord.”  Very true words.

Sense 2020 is good for more than vision, what are some things I can look for in the year 2020?

  1. A rejuvenated love for Jesus.  Read your love letter from God, the Bible more.
  2. A renewed sense of serving Jesus.  Find ways to help others to glorify God.
  3. A rekindled participation in church life.  More than attend, participate.

Are these important?  Yes!  Jesus could return for the Gospel believer at any moment.  When He does come, our love for Jesus, service to Jesus, and participation with other Christians in church will take on a paramount priority in our life – but when the rapture happens, it will be too late!  Once the trumpet sounds, the love for Jesus will continue in Heaven, the service will continue (or begin for some) in Heaven, and the people we fellowship with at church (or avoid due to lack of attendance and participation) will continue (or begin) in Heaven!

Make the most of 2020 for demonstrating love and devotion to Jesus.

This world probably does not have another Century before the rapture.
