How many people have you spoken with that are not ready for death? Many people say they want to see Jesus, but “just not right now.” Many will say they are not prepared, or that there is something that they still needed to do before they die.
Hebrews 9:27-28 states, ““Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”
Death is coming for us all. We cannot run from it or pretend that it does not exist. It may happen today, tomorrow, or in eighty years. Whenever God plans to take us home, we should always be ready. We should always be “where God wants us to be.”
If there is sin in your life, NOW is the time to get rid of it. If there is something that God has told you to do, NOW is the time to do it. Do not wait for another day or a better time. NOW is your time.
Only God knows when the end will come. But we all know there we will have an end. It is our responsibility to do today what God has told us to do. Therefore when there is a tomorrow and a time for us to go, we will be ready.
