We are often told “we should live as if Jesus could return today.”
“Perhaps today!” This is a slogan that is commonly heard in various Christian circles. A version of this is found in the popular hymn:
Jesus may come today
Glad day, glad day!
And I would see my friend;
Dangers and troubles would end
If Jesus should come today.
The problem is that it sounds nice and pious and preaches well, but the Bible never teaches that this should be our motivation.
Rather, the Bible teaches in a singular voice that we should live in light of the fact that Jesus is returning.
