Don’t be Caught Unprepared!

If we are called on for an assignment or opportunity, we want to be prepared. We want to do well. We want to seize opportunities. Why, then, do we seldom think about the most important thing for which we need to be prepared? If we have not surrendered our hearts and lives to Jesus, receiving Him as Savior and Lord, heed this ominous warning: “….it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (From Hebrews 9:27). In one very brief moment of judgment our eternal destiny is fixed forever! Banished to Hell eternally with no opportunity for change. The True Christian, however, has had his or her judgment laid onto Jesus! He bore it! Because of that he or she will be forever with the Lord. We will meet Him some day! Every genuine Christian will be at that meeting. Be it death or the Rapture, we will meet Him face to face! Are we ready for that? Will He  be able to say, “Well done?” In Matthew 25:23, Jesus taught about a faithful servant: ” His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” In the hymn, “Will Jesus Find Us Watching,” Fanny Crosby offers these soul-searching questions: “When Jesus comes to reward His servants, whether it be noon or night, faithful to Him will He find us watching, with our lamps all trimmed and bright? If, at the dawn of the early morning, He shall call us one by one, when to the Lord we restore our talents, will He answer thee–“Well done”? Have we been true to the trust He left us? Do we seek to do our best? If in our hearts there is naught condemns us, we shall have a glorious rest.” Selah! Now is the only time that we can make preparation. If we have never received Jesus, now could be the only opportunity we’ll ever have. If we know Him in a personal saving relationship, now is our only guaranteed opportunity to render loving and grateful service. Prepare now, tomorrow might be too late!    Ron
