Prepare to Meet Him
Sane and Sensible Perspectives on the Last Days
This could be easily overlooked, especially if we don’t stop to examine what may be hidden away in the depths of our heart. We love the Lord! We want Him to come. But… Do we really want His Kingdom to reign directly over us? Are we truly ready to meet Him face to face? There is quite a distance in the Bible between Adam and Eve who hid from God and those whom Paul says, “love His appearing.” Part of being prepared, therefore, is making sure that there is nothing left in our hearts that would secretly want Jesus not to come!
Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:8 ESV
