For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 1 THESSALONIANS 5:2, NKJV
If you’ve ever been to England, one of the first things you may have noticed is that they drive on the opposite side of the road than we do in North America—and the driver’s side is on the right side of the car. The first time I visited England I went by train, but the second time I decided to rent a car. I knew this would be a bit of an adventure, but I concluded that I could adjust to the driving. Within the first ten minutes, I had my first minor problem. While driving down a very narrow street in London, I got a little too close to the cars on the left side, and my left side-view mirror clipped the side-view mirror of a parked car.
Our first stop on that trip was to a place called Stonehenge. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Stonehenge is an ancient monument a few hours outside of London made up of a collection of large stones. Historians think they are more than four thousand years old, but the most intriguing thing about the site is the fact that no one really knows what the meaning or purpose for this monument was. The culture responsible for the construction of Stonehenge didn’t leave any kind of written record, so there are many myths surrounding the stones. When we arrived, we parked the car at the visitor’s center and walked a short way to the monument. Tourists are only allowed to walk around the perimeter of the stone, but it’s still very exciting being around something that is so old. There are many mysteries about this site that will never be known this side of heaven.
One of the greatest mysteries is the question about when JESUS will return. People have tried to calculate and guess, but the Bible clearly says that only GOD knows. Our job is to be ready every day by living each day completely for GOD.
