“Caught up” (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
How many times have you been asked, or even wondered yourself, “will you ever get caught up?” It just seems like there is always one more deadline, one more task, one more important something that needs to be taken care of.
But yes, there is a day when we will be “caught up.” Not just as far as deadlines, tasks, appointments, and commitments of this life are concerned, but “caught up” out of this world away from it all, to meet the Lord in the air and be with Him in the Father’s house forever. Then there will be no more pressing business, and no pressure to get caught up. The above verse goes on to tell us that we will be “caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
As far as the tasks and duties of this life are concerned,
“We won’t be caught up until we are caught up!”
Caught up, and in a moment, forever with the Lord;
Caught up, and then with Jesus, the laborer’s bright reward.
Caught up, no pressing business, no occupation there,
Save, singing Jesus’ praises, will be our only care.
