A Thief In The Night ~ Are you ready?

I had a wonderful devotional this morning and felt compelled to share it:  This is from 'Love Worth Finding" by Adrian Rodgers.

Like a Thief in the Night
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:2
There was a man who went shopping and left his car and house keys in the ignition. When he returned, his car was gone. The next morning he discovered his car in the driveway with a note that said, “I was in an emergency. I’m very sorry. I needed your car. Here are two tickets for the Dallas Cowboys game.”
The man went in and told his wife, “You won’t believe this! There’s our car, and look! We’ve got tickets to a Dallas Cowboys game!” They went to the game, and when they came home, their house had been cleaned out!
Friend, they never expected it, and that’s the point. That’s how the Lord Jesus Christ is going to come – as a thief in the night.
How would you live your life if you knew the Lord was coming back in the next 24 hours?
