Are You Ready?

Are You Ready?

There is a hymn that asks “Are you ready?” That is a question that has been asked many times in my life. Whether it was a basketball game in which I was participating, a test, parenthood, or ice storms, the question continues to be asked. I feel like the answer many times is, “Ready or not, here I come.” I hate being unprepared, and I have learned that lesson too many times. But most things that come at us, whether we are ready or not, do not make a big difference. I want to talk to you about something that makes an eternal difference. You will spend eternity somewhere. Are you ready? The Lord will return like a thief in the night (1 Thessalonians 5:1-6). No one knows when the thief is coming. That is why we always lock our doors. Are you living your life like the Lord could come at any time? In Matthew 25 we call the virgins in the first lesson foolish because they were unprepared. Will the same be said of us at the Lord’s return? Do not count His slowness as room to live how you want but as an opportunity to repent before it is too late (2 Peter 3:9).
