The Proper Impression

Are you looking for Jesus’ return? If you are motivated by prejudice against other Christians or in general, whether they are black or white, rich or poor, cultured or culturally niave, whatever they may be – then the return of Jesus Christ has not made its proper impression on you.

If you are contemplating some sin, perhaps a dishonest act in business, perhaps trifiling with sex outside of marriage, perhaps cheating on your income tax return – then the return of Jesus Christ has not made its proper impression on you.

If your life is marked by a contentious, divisive spirit in which you seek to tear down the work of another person instead of building it up – then the return of Jesus Christ has not made its proper impression on you.

If you protect your own interests and neglect to give food, water, or clothing to the needy as we are instructed to do in Christ’s name – then the return of Jesus Christ has not made its proper impression on you.
