Be Ready

Post  LivinginChrist on Wed 14 Nov 2007, 11:07 pm

Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.”’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’ So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Luke 12:16-21

Sometimes it is easy for people to think they have many years left. But that is a foolish perspective. We need to live like we will meet with the Lord tonight.

That doesn’t mean you don’t work towards the future; it doesn’t mean you don’t save. In fact, the Bible says a righteous man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children.

But we need to live in such a way that we will not be ashamed because we have left all sorts of unused and undesignated funds sitting in the bank that are not going to do anybody any good.

Someday we will have to stand before Jesus and give an account for all of our stuff. And that may be sooner than later!

This is a powerful message and reminds me of a close relative who always lived by saying that he is young so he must enjoy his life and religious life is for older people and when he will get old he will turn to religion and seek forgiveness for his sins. But he never saw his oldage and was never to seek forgiveness.

We should live our lives for Jesus and be ready to meet Him at given time.

God bless
