Are You Ready For Company

The guest will soon begin to arrive for the holidays, but have you ever really thought about what all you do to get ready for someone to visit your home?

Do you clean the house from top to bottom? Maybe even buy new towels and linens or pay someone to shampoo the carpet? What about that unfinished remodeling project? Would that finally get done? We havenít even talked about what food youíre going to serve or what needs to be done in the yard!

Most of us would feel like we needed to do something to get ready for an important person to visit our home. But what if that person was Jesus?

What would you need to do to get ready if He were to return today?

If we have urgency about getting our house ready for company, shouldn't we have an even greater sense of urgency about being prepared for Christís return?

Matthew 24:44

So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Are you ready?

I love you all,
