"Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life." ESV
While we are waiting for Christ's soon return, it is our responsibility to keep ourselves in the light of His love, just like that first love we had for Him when we first accepted Him into our hearts. We can do this only by His unending grace and mercy. It is His love for us that supplies this grace and mercy so that we will be found ready when He comes.
Heavenly Father, You know our human nature and how often we drift off into the things of the world around us. We stand in great need of Your grace and mercy to remain in the light of Your love so that we will be ready when You come for us. Help us, we pray, to commit ourselves to staying in the light of Your love. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
