Our Pastor started preaching a series on Prophecy from the book of Revelation and there was one thing that he said in his sermon last week that really stuck with me. He was explaining that the purpose of Revelation was to give us a glimpse of what is to come so that we can be motivated to share with others of the things to come, but also so that we can make sure that WE are ready for Christ to come back. That got me thinking - I am a "to-do list" person - not always written down, but I always have a mental "to-do list" in my head that I am checking off. A list for shopping, for cleaning, for errands, for things I need to accomplish around the house, for cake orders, etc. But do I have a spiritual "to-do list?" Are there things that I am working on or need to be working on before the big event of Christ coming back? Am I truly ready to face Christ - with my relationship the way that is, with my service to Him, and in many other areas? There are many things that I want to do before His return - not just the "get married, have kids" sort of things but spiritual things like develop a closer, more meaningful relationship, learn more about Him and His attributes, serve Him more and in bigger ways, share salvation with others, disciple others, and the list could go on and on. So this week I have been working on making a "spiritual to-do list" to put it in my Bible - some are short term goals and some long term. I am looking forward to checking things off and seeing what I can accomplish for Christ!
How about you? Are you ready to face the return of Christ? If you know Him as your Saviour are there things you still want to do for Him, and are you working on them? If you are not sure where you would spend eternity if Christ were to come back today, you can check out this page to read more.
