He is coming back – CAC Living Water Devotional


THE LIVING WATER (January-December, 2023)

Mark 13:32-36

[32]. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

[33]. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.

[34]. It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.

[35]. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning—

[36]. lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping.


Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— (Mark 13:35)


The great Dwight L. Moody used to say, “I never preached a sermon without thinking that possibly the Lord may come before I preach another”. Dr. G Campbell Morgan, the distinguished British clergyman, said, “I never begin my work in the morning without thinking that perhaps He may interrupt my work and begin His own. I am not looking for death, I am looking for Him.” That is the way a Christian should live his life in constant anticipation of the return of Jesus Christ! If we could live every day as though it may be the very last one before the final judgment, what a difference it would make here on earth! But lots of us don’t like to think that. We don’t like to think that our carefully made plans, our long-range schemes may be interrupted by the trumpet of God. Too many people would rather say, “Oh, well, the end of the world hasn’t come yet, so why think about it?

It is probably a thousand years away” And whether we like it or not, Jesus is coming very soon. The very soon is what deceives a lot of people.They think He calculates time in man’s way (cf. Isa. 55:8ff). Of course, when man counts a thousand years, it is just like a day to God. Assuming we take that literally, the time we have spent so far in the year of our Lord (AD), 2022, amounts to just about 2 days. What does that mean to you? If Jesus says He is coming soonest, it is not up to a week that He left! Do you get the logic? Don’tbe deceived that He won’t come back. Scoffers are only fulfilling Scripture negatively. Don’t join them; the consequences are dire. Only those, who patiently and faithfully wait for Him till the end will laugh last (Matt. 25:1ff).


1. Jesus is coming with joy to the sky
Oh, happy day! oh, happy day!
Then all who love Him shall heavenward fly.
Oh, happy day! Happy day!
Upward shall fly to the Lord in the air,
Together with Jesus we all shall be there,
Far from the earth, and from sorrow and care
Oh, happy day! Happy day!

2. Parents and children shall then again meet,
Oh, happy day! Oh happy day!
Sisters and brothers oh, it will be sweet!
Oh, happy day! Happy day!
We miss’d them on earth, to Jesus they went;
We love them as ever, their absence lament;
Soon we shall meet them, and then be content,
Oh, happy day! Happy day!

3. Are we all ready, should Jesus now call?
Oh! Happy day! oh happy day!
Would each one answer, the great and the small?
Oh, happy day! happy day!
We long to rise up and with Thee to be,
Thy face, blessed Jesus, our
Saviour to see
Would you then, dear children, sing sweetly with me?
Oh, happy day! happy day!

4. Some will stay weeping unable to sing,
Oh, happy day! oh happy day!
Yet all may rejoice their glad praises bring
Oh, happy day! happy day!
For Jesus still waits, He tarries that we
May trust in His name, and thus ready may be,
When brightly beaming, His glory we see
Oh, happy day! happy day!



1. Lord Jesus, grant me divine enablement to always prepare for Your Return.

2. Today might be the last day when Jesus’ return. Father, cleanse and prepare me.

3. Pray for CAC Odubanjo Region, our father in the Lord, the Superintendent, and its officers at the various levels, as led by the Spirit of God.
