Are You Ready to Meet Jesus Tonight?
Matthew 24:44 So you also must be ready. The Son of Man will come at a time when you don't expect him.
I was just about to sit down to prepare today’s message, when the phone rang. It was a colleague of mine to let me know that another man, Tom, with whom I’d worked for many years, had passed away overnight.
Tom was just a couple of years older than me and in the middle of the night, he had a heart attack without warning. He was one of the most decent human beings that I’ve ever known. Yet it happened so suddenly.
And that’s the way it is. So often we have this plan and that dream. We’ll get around to this and that when we have time. And yet, it all ends so suddenly.
So you also must be ready. The Son of Man will come at a time when you don’t expect him. (Matthew 24:44)
The question is, are you ready if Jesus returns tonight? Are you ready if tonight, your life is demanded of you? Or do you plan on getting around to accepting Jesus Christ as you Saviour some other time? Do you plan on starting to live your life for Him some other time?
Don’t get me wrong, I get it. I know life’s busy. I know you have a lot on your plate, and you’ll get around to it one day.
The problem is though, that “one day”, perhaps even tomorrow, it’ll be too late. Today’s a good day. In fact, it’s the perfect day to turn your life over to Jesus, to start living your life for Him.
Yep. Today is the best day of all. You see, it happens so suddenly.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
