For the past few days our house has been a whirlwind of activity. You see my mom and her husband Joe came up for a visit. Wanting to make sure everything goes well, Gayla has cleaned, cleaned some more, planned menus and so forth. I don't know about your house, but I think it is safe to say the same thing happens when y'all are expecting guests.
There is another we should be expecting, Christ Jesus comforted His disciples and us with these words: "Do not let your heart be troubles; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am there you may be also." John 14: 1-3
Yes, Christ Jesus is coming back some day. I know some of you who are reading this will say, "Right, Jesus is coming back. So where is he after all this time?" My answer to you is this, He is waiting and watching. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9. Maybe you are the one He is waiting on.
So what does it take to get ready for Christ Jesus' return? "Therefore I repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;" Acts 3:19.
Are you ready for Christ Jesus return visit?
