Question

The song below asks a serious question, “Are You Ready for Jesus to Come?”

Let’s face it. We sometimes find ourselves getting comfortable in this old world.

We get caught up in climbing career ladders, finding life partners, buying or building dream homes, raising children and everything else that we sometimes lose sight of the fact that we don’t have permanent residence here.

We are cautioned against this in Colossians 3:1-2 (CEV), “You have been raised to life with Christ. Now set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God’s right side. Think about what is up there, not about what is here on earth.”

Yes, we are expected to make a life for ourselves. We are told to “occupy” till He comes. (Luke 19:13)

But we shouldn’t get so settled that we are willing to give up Heaven for here.
Hebrews 13:14 (GNB) says, “For there is no permanent city for us here on earth; we are looking for the city which is to come.”

“..a city..whose builder and maker is God.”
Hebrews 11:10 KJV

So if Jesus was to return today, are we ready?
