5.Let your gentleness be evident to all.The lord is near.
6.Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,present your request to God.
The message is simply this – live for Christ and not this world. Look for Christ and concentrate on the next world.
And we have the assurance that we can be ready, In 1 Thess. 5:23 we read:
Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our lord Jesus Christ comes again.
Be kept blameless until the coming of Jesus.
“DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND”
