Make a good investment with your life

1_peter_3b

“The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober minded for the sake of your prayers” 1 Peter 4:7

How can Christians, in light of the fact that Jesus is coming back, make a good investment with their life? Here are six admonitions (or warnings) on how to prepare:

  1. Live each day as though Jesus could return at once (4:7)
  2. Keep a clear head and don’t get carried away by your desires or passions (4:7)
  3. Stay disciplined and alert for prayer (4:7)
  4. Make active expressions of love a priority (4:8)
  5. Be faithful in the stewardship of your gifts, investing your time and talent where they will make an eternal difference (4:10)
  6. In everything, praise God as the source of your energy and the reason for your service (4:11)
