Scripture: Revelation 16:
15"Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed."
Observation: It is an urgent and important matter to be prepared to meet God.
Application: Yesterday was a very busy day for me, and As I lay down to sleep last night, I thought about all the different things that had happened. I was going to sleep in a far different place than where I woke up and I had covered quite a bit of ground. But you know, we try to fit so much into our lives that often we feel like we just need more time in the day. I suppose it is the nature of our society.
One of the downfalls to our modern lifestyle is the fact that we are so busy with every little detail which seems to be so urgent that we often overlook things of great importance. There is nothing more important than your soul, and being prepared to face God is the prime directive of this life. Whether the second coming of Christ is now, tomorrow or a thousand years from now is irrelevant in the equation because you could be standing before Him before you reach the end of THIS day.
I’m not trying to bring you down by making you think about your mortality today, but rather I want to lift you up with the blessed assurance of your salvation! If you are not ready, NOW is the time to get ready. And it’s so easy! You can be prepared for that time that sneaks up on many like a thief.
If you don’t think you would be ready to stand before God right now – take five mins more and visit this link. Need God
Prayer: Father Almighty,
Help me to always be prepared to meet you.
