YOUNG PERSON ARE YOU READY?
Matthew 24:44, …” Therefore, be ye also ready, for in such an hour, as you think not, the Son of Man cometh.”
Those familiar words “Are you ready?”, we hear them so often from our friends, parents, teachers, etc. When certain occasions, such as Weddings, Vacations, Christmas, graduation, approaches, we are faced with the same question, “Are you ready?” Seems we spend a lot of time getting ready to go here and there, doing this and that. May , I encourage you today especially to the youth that in all your “getting ready“ you make sure you get ready for eternity. Ecclesiastics 12:1 states Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”: In all your preparations, prepare yourself spiritually to meet Jesus. Take that time now to get ready to meet your Creator.
You see, if death should knock or Jesus should come, it will then be too late to “get ready”. You see, there are times when others have come calling that we have had to respond with, “Just a moment, I’m almost ready”, but when Jesus calls, there will be no extra moments, no time to finish preparing. Once He calls, it’s time. What is done is done! It’s as Matt. 24:44 states at the beginning, ‘BE YE ALSO READY…” for we do not know when Jesus will come calling. You are young and the enemy would want you to believe that “later” will be enough time to get ready, but maybe not. The Word says, “ Do not boast of tomorrow, for you do not know what another day will bring forth.” Do not gamble with your soul! You may be here tomorrow, you may not be.
Many young people have gone into eternity “not ready “ because they planned to “be ready” later, only later did not come. Think about it now. Make the most of your time, spend it for Jesus. Make sure, beyond any doubt that when Jesus calls, you will be able to answer gladly, “I’m Ready “. If you aren’t ready, I pray that today you will make yourself ready to meet Him.
Jesus is coming! MARANTHA!
