Therefore, be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh. Matthew 24:44.
If there is anything very clear in the mind of most people, it is the fact that we are now in the end times, and that this world will soon come to an end. Evil, sin and wickedness are on the increase daily with wars and regional conflicts in many places. Even the natural world is revolting with an unusual increase in the rate of natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricane winds, tornados, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, landslides (even in Nigeria). Terrorists are on rampage all over the world and there is palpable fear across the world. All these are pointers to the fact that our time here is short, and that we may leave any moment, either through death or the Rapture.
Beloved, our days on this planet are numbered, and we will soon be called to meet our creator. Jesus admonishes us in our text that we need to be ready as the son of man will be coming at an hour we do not expect. In 2 Peter 3: 10, we are told that the day of the lord will come as a thief in the night. The key for us therefore is to live ready, ready for his coming or the day of our departure (you will however not die a premature death in Jesus name). Are you ready for him today? What if it happens this moment, will you make it to the marriage supper of the lamb?
Getting ready means, we must surrender our lives to Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. Having done that, we must commit to live the rest of our lives by pleasing him, obeying his commands and living in Holiness. We must also avoid any form of contamination by sin.
You can do so by praying this prayer: “Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I believe you came and died for my sins. Today, I surrender my life to you. Please forgive me all my sins, wash me by your blood, and be my Lord and Saviour. Thank you for saving me. Amen!”
If you pray this prayer and you meant it, then you are now a child of God (John 1: 12). You need to get a Bible and read it daily, and also take time to pray to God and avoid every form of sin. Locate a Bible believing church around you to attend regularly.
God bless You ______________________________________________________________________________
