Are You Ready?

Are You Ready?

I awoke this morning to the news of Les Beasley’s death. This got me thinking about Heaven and what a wonderful promise that this life is not all there is. No wonder those who don’t know the Lord weep as those who have no hope. After all, that is truly how they are: hopeless.

But then my mind turns to those who hope, but it is hope in the weakest sense of the word: they hope that they are going to make it. I mean, they live a basically good life. They may have one or two areas that some people would consider to be sin but God wouldn’t judge them for that, would He? He’s a God of grace after all.

I am thank for God’s grace, but His grace does not negate His holiness. There is a reason Jesus told the parable of the sheep and the goats. “Many will say unto me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?’ And then will I profess unto them, ‘I never knew you: depart from me, you who work iniquity'” (Matthew 7:22-23). I believe this will be the majority of professing believers in America today.

I am not being judgmental. I’m examining my own heart as well. Are there things in my life that aren’t pleasing to the Lord? Am I accomplishing God’s purposes in my life? Am I truly walking with Him, or am I living for myself? Am I ready to meet Him if He were to call me Home tonight? I would encourage you to ask these questions of yourself and know that you will see your loved ones again after this life is over. Are you ready?
