Are your ducks in a row?
Is your check list completed?
Look out here it comes…
Are you Ready?...hmmm…for what?
I just went to Disaster Relief Training.
I hope I am ready to help others through the recovery of disaster.
And in all honesty I just added to my “To-Do” list the updating of our first aid supplies. These are great ways to be prepared.
There are also other things we need to get ready for…
marriage, education, buying a home or further down the line…retirement.
But how prepared are you for that final breath…
the last gasp of air on this earth?
Are you ready for your death?
Have you thought about your life and it’s final end?
Psalm 39:4, “Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.” (NIV)
People in general don’t like to talk about it…I wonder why?
How about you are you ready?
Or are you like the others?
Is it because they are in denial?
Is it that you have bought what others say about “this is all there is”?
Hebrews 9:27-28, “We die only once, and then we are judged.
So Christ died only once to take away the sins of many people.
But when he comes again, it will not be to take away sin.
He will come to save everyone who is waiting for him.” (CEV)
I believe in God and his promise.
John 3:16-17, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge,
but to be its savior.” (GNT)
Why is it so difficult to believe in God…He believes in you.
And why not trust him and take it to the next level?
To this day I have not understood why so many say they believe in God…
yet reject His precious gift of Jesus, His son.
Romans 10:9, “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved.” (NIV)
I can say with confidence, I am ready!
I am ready to live in Heaven with Jesus.
Won’t you get ready?
Heaven is real and it would be wonderful to see you there!
Jesus speaking…John 14:1-8, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled.
Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.
If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?
When everything is ready, I will come and get you,
so that you will always be with me where I am.
And you know the way to where I am going.”
“No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said.
“We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one can come to the Father except through me.” (NLT)
