Making the time ready for Jesus to return

The disciples expected that Christ would "come" as King, with a royal presence, and to remove the Romans and thrown down the corrupt temple, all at the same time and soon! It was a disappointment for them it turned not out that way, but they came to understand we could have an even much better future because of what Jesus had done. Though they also became convinced of the necessity to be prepared for the time that Jesus would return and that each believer could add by his effort of preaching, to bring the time closer.

Making proclamation as a herald

Not many obey the Word of God and even fewer people are prepared to speak about it. Real Christians as followers of Jesus have to follow up the task given by Christ to go out into the world, preaching the Good News of the coming Kingdom of God.
