Are you ready?

Luke 12:35-36 "Be dressed for service and well prepared, as though you were waiting for your master to return from the wedding feast. Then you will be ready to open the door and let him in the moment he arrives and knocks."

Are you ready? Have you taken care of your soul so that at any given moment you would be ready to stand before God in judgment? Have you opened up your heart to the Lord and invited Him to come in? Are you careful how you live? Or, is there a sense of uncertainty about it all and you are afraid what it would be like to face God if you were to do it today?

It is very important that we ask ourselves these questions because we don’t know when it will be our turn to face God. No one knows if he will live beyond the moment. No one can be assured he will live a certain number of days. No one knows for sure when the Lord will return. The way things are looking, I believe the Lord is coming very soon.

In order to know for sure that you are ready to stand before God, you must live in readiness today. You must confess any sin in your heart that you have been letting lie there. You must seek the Lord out in His Word and in your prayer closet. You must be involved in Christian fellowship for the nurturing of your soul. You must be using your time and energy to serve the Lord and not yourself. You must live compassionately amongst men and strive to help others know Him too.

You must stand guard over your soul and resist the lures of temptation. You must take responsibility for your mind and heart and fill them with godly and not ungodly things. The more you do these things, the readier you will be for the Lord to come for you. You can look for that day with confidence or fear. Are you ready?
