Matthew 25:13 – “Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.” Here in the book of Matthew chapter 25, Jesus is talking about being prepared for His return. That you and I need to be prepared at all times because we don’t know when that moment will be. Last weekend we headed over to central Oregon for a couple days to attend a friend’s wedding. We left on Thursday afternoon and arrived that evening at about 7:45pm. As we walked in the door to our room we quickly noticed that they were not at all prepared for our arrival! There were mops, buckets, and cleaning supplies still out and unused, the bedding was strewn all over, and the place clearly had not been cleaned yet. Fortunately, although it was later in the day, they had another place for us to stay. Throughout the scripture, the Lord calls us to be prepared for His return. No one will know the day or the hour, but we have to continually be at work serving Him and fulfilling His purpose. Are you prepared for His sudden and imminent return? With all that we see going on in our world today, we know that we’re living in the last days, and that He’ll return soon to gather believers to Himself. Make sure that you have given your life fully to Christ, and that you are walking with Him in obedience each day. Jesus will return soon, and He wants us all to be ready! Lord bless, Pastor Mark Mehl

Isaiah 28:16 - “Therefore thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.” We should always be thankful for Jesus Christ, the foundation and cornerstone of our life! When everything around us seems shaky, we know that we have a strong foundation in Him. I am greatly troubled about the upcoming elections and for the future of our nation, as I’m sure you are as well. I’ve also been greatly concerned for the state of Christianity in our country. I heard on the radio yesterday that you now have a greater chance of being baptized as a new Christian if you live in Beijing, China, than if you live in the United States. Daily we are unmooring ourselves from the foundation of His Word, and accepting more and more of what God has told us is wrong. Thankfully, Jesus promises to be our solid foundation if we put our faith in Him! Our foundation is not in a person and what they decide is righteous on any particular day, but it is in Jesus Christ and the truth of His Word. Whenever I worry about the days and years ahead, I have to continue to acknowledge Him as the firm foundation, and my prayer is that more and more people in our nation will choose to stand, not on man, but on Christ the solid foundation. Continue to pray for our nation and a humble repentance before God. Jesus Christ is the answer, and our people must turn to Him. Lord bless your week, Pastor Mark Mehl
