Matthew 24:44 “Therefore, be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the, the Son of Man cometh.”
We don’t often think about it, but tires are amazing. No matter how cold it is outside they carry us along, and when it is so hot you could fry an egg on the pavement, they continue to carry us along in comfort. Tires take the heavy load, smooth out the bumps, and save our bodies from being tossed about. They take the punishment while we just ride along.
You know, one day, a tire may get a nail in it or it may wear out and lose the tread. But, you don’t think about that as you ride along in comfort, getting to your job or meeting. Maybe once in a while you might kick one (great way to check it), but otherwise you they don’t cross your mind…until it’s too late.
It’s the same way with Jesus Christ. He took the punishment that was ours. He carries us along through life. If you have put your trust in Him He carries your load, smooths out the bumps, and He will carry us through to our final destination. But you can’t wait for “the nail in the tire”. Trust Jesus now and you will get to your destination.
