As Christians, we must be ready at all times to be ready to meet our God. Friend, are you ready to meet him if you were to leave this earth? The only way we can answer that question truthfully is if we are already dead. The only way to be effectual for our God is to be dead to self so that he can rule. It is not our actions, but his. Not our words, but his voice. Not actions that we thought up but actions of his chosing. Let us be ready to meet him when he calls by be ready. Even now. Amen.
