Are You Ready?

And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.

Hebrews 9:27

An executive was interviewing a woman who was applying for a staff position. He read her application and said, “I see your birthday is April 12.” Then he asked a question that he never should have asked. He asked her, “What year?” 

Without blinking an eye, she replied, “Every year.” She got the job! And he never asked that question again!

One thing is certain for all of us – with each day that passes and with each year that passes, we’re all moving closer to our last day on earth.

At the end of our lives, we each will stand before God to be judged on one simple thing: What have you done with His Son, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for your sins and rose from the grave to give you eternal life?

Are you ready to stand before Jesus and give an account for your life? If you are saved by the blood of Jesus, you are ready because His blood covers your sins. As a believer in Jesus Christ, are you pleased with the life you have lived? Have you served Him, loved Him, and pleased Him with your life?

Today is a new day. You can start living for Jesus like you haven’t before. The past is the past. So start living your life like Jesus could come back at any time. Be ready to give an account to Jesus at the judgment seat of Christ that brings glory and honor to Him.

If you are not saved, you are not ready to give an account to Jesus. The only thing you can say is Lord I didn’t place my faith in you. Jesus will say those words none us of want to hear. “But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of evil!’ (Luke 13:27).

The only way we have a home in heaven is if we ask Jesus to save us from our sins and give us eternal life because of the blood He shed for us on the cross. Be ready to give an account to Jesus. Your very soul depends on it.

Have a great day and keep moving forward!
