"Are You Ready"

What is your response to this question? Are You Ready? Do you know what I am referring to in this song? This song came at the end of a sermon at church one Sunday when the pastor simply asked those three words. The sermon was about the parable of the 10 virgins awaiting the coming of the bridegroom. Five wise bridesmaids came prepared with their lamps filled with oil, they were ready when the bridegroom came. But the other five foolish bridesmaids did not have enough oil in their lamps and as they went off to get more, they missed the bridegroom and it was too late for them. Christ tells this story along with other parables in the Bible to let us know that we must be ready for Christ’s return at all times, for we know not the day or the hour.

In my song I try to emphasize the importance of knowing Christ and asking the question if you are ready to meet him? Meeting Him today and living your life for Him on this earth is what He desires for every single one of us. Though, many put it off and seem to be waiting for some type of revival to occur before they will make that commitment. Living a life for Heaven verses living a life for earthly things is great distinction of being a Christian.

I’ve been in an in depth Bible Study of the book of Revelation, and there are always talks about the Rapture of the Church, Pre-Trib, Mid-Trib or Post Trib, and there are many different opinions. But the one constant that everyone always agrees on, is that we must be ready. At the time of Christ’s return, will you be ready?

So many things occur today in this world that are undoubtedly out of our control. Whether it is accidents, violence or diseases that can occur that can possibly take our lives before the day of Christ’s return, and again the question always comes down to - Are you ready? As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, I know the answer to this question. I pray that you do too!
