Are you ready?

I recently had a resident ask me “Are you ready?  Do you know where you’re going?”

I was able to answer emphatically yes to both questions.  Not that I’m getting a bus up

Where will you spend eternity?

anytime soon.

However, the unexpected deaths of some of our celebrities throughout the end of last year was enough to really make you think.   These were men and women who were in good health one moment and gone the next.

It made me think about the question my resident asked.  Are you ready?

When my time comes I’m ready and know where I’m going.

However, I’ve heard him ask others the same question who did not understand the depth of what he was asking.

Jesus will return again one day

We never know when God may call us home.

Each day is a blessing, but it’s never promised.

In Matthew 25:13, Jesus said “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour”.  While he was referring in that passage to his second coming, we can also say the same is true for when we may close our eyes for the final time.

So, let me ask you the same question I was asked.

Are you ready?  Do you know where you’re going?
