Will We Be Ready?
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall 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.” This is, our blessed hope. But, the question is, will we be Ready, in this respect? Are we eagerly looking for our Lord’s return?
Can we say we are Ready, and living in a state of faith, love, and righteousness. Are we Ready, knowing full well, that we are the lamps (vessels), and we are filled with oil (the Holy Spirit); Ready, and telling others about Jesus? Finally, are we Ready, in that we have an understanding, that in Christ’s coming, there is a finality? Our time, on earth, will be over as far as winning the lost for Jesus.
Dear Father, I want to do all that you ask of me. Nothing is too small; I am not above anything you ask. Nothing is too big; for with God all things are possible. Therefore, Holy Spirit, help me to be always conscious, of the time to do things to build my Lord’s kingdom. That time would be now, before I meet Him in the air. Holy Spirit, please help me to live in a state of readiness.
Be blessed in Jesus’ name.
