Ready To Meet Him?

Are you ready to meet God? Would you be ready to meet Him today? Would you be able to stand before Him right now, in all of His holiness, and honestly say that you have known Him, lived for Him, and loved Him with your whole heart? There are those who feel that they have plenty of time to get to know God. "Someday," one well-educated young man said, "I will set things right with the Lord. I am still young and have my whole life ahead of me." Unfortunately, that "someday" never came. A sudden diagnosis of cancer left him with only a few months to live. "I'm not ready to die!" he cried helplessly, pleading for one more chance at life. "I'm not ready to meet God. Not yet!" It was not long after this that his last breath was snatched away by the cold and merciless grip of inevitable death. Such sad finality. He was never again to return to this world and make things right. Never to take back those wasted and empty days that he had lived so selfishly. He had missed his only chance to get to know his Creator on a personal level. He had passed up the free gift of salvation that was offered to him and he would never be able to come back and experience the heights of joy and the depths of peace that can only come from a close relationship with the Most High God. He had never known the kindness, the compassion, the faithfulness, the security, and the love that is poured out on those who invite God to dwell within them. He had missed his chance at happiness for all of eternity. Death did not wait until he was ready. Death waits for no man, as they say. It will be the same for all of us. When your time on earth is done, it is done. Forever.

" is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" - Hebrews 9:27 (KJV)

The bible says, "Prepare to meet thy God" (Amos 4:12 KJV). That means that you need to begin preparing right here and right now. Do not wait another moment. Do not wait until "someday" when you have more time. Time is running out and the opportunity may never present itself again. The silent and unseen clock of your life is ticking away the seconds until midnight. Will you be ready to meet your God when the clock strikes twelve and the chimes ring out? Do not wait until it is too late. The time for God in your life is now.

We will ask this again: Would you be ready to meet God today? Upon looking back at your life and the choices that you have made, would you be able to say that things have been right between you and your Creator? Has He been precious to you? Has your soul overflowed with a deep love for Him? Have you called Him your Friend, your Father, your Savior, your King, your Everything? Have you strived to please Him and to obey His Word? Have you lived your life in a way that would bring honor and glory to His name? Search your heart for the answers. Be truthful. If you find that you either cannot answer or your answer is "no" to any of these questions, now is the time to make things right. Listen to the still, small voice inside of you that is saying, "Come unto me" (Matthew 11:28 KJV). God is speaking to you. Do not put him off until another day. It could be that you end up waiting until it is one day too late. That is a risk that is not worth taking. God has given you this day and you need to give this day to your God. Spend time getting to know Him. Find time for prayer. Devote time to the holy scriptures of your King James Bible. Draw near to The One who knows you by name and loves you unconditionally.

"Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you." (James 4:8 KJV)

God is faithful and kind and He wants you to "come boldly to the throne of Grace" (Hebrews 4:16 KJV). He wants you to approach Him. He wants you to kneel before Him in earnest prayer and ask Him to help you get to know Him better. He will hear you. He will not turn a deaf ear on your prayer. He loves your voice. He loves your prayers, no matter how few words they contain. A simple "I love you, My Lord" is just as special in the ears of our God as any long and eloquent prayer. He is not looking for perfection, He is looking for sincerity. If you sincerely want to know Him and sincerely want to love Him, He will become yours and you will become His. He will open the doors and let you enter into a lifetime with Him. You will then be able to face death with the certainty that you will be spending eternity with Him! There is no fear in death for those whose hearts are right with Almighty God!
