Be Thoroughly in Tune

Wherever you may live, and whatever may be your trials; however great your difficulties, and however small your helps; nothing should prevent your aiming at the highest standard, to behave like one who believes that Christ is coming again!

You should resolve, by God’s help, to live so that the day of Christ shall find you needing as little change as possible! You should seek to have . . . your tastes so heavenly, your affections so spiritual, your will so subdued, your mind so unworldly that when the Lord appears, you may be thoroughly in tune for His kingdom!

[J.C. Ryle]

1 Thessalonians 5:23 … And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Luke 12:35 … Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning.

Revelation 19:7 … Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. ♥
