Some people are prepared to wait for many things.
– They prepare while waiting for an important test day.
– They prepare while waiting for their wedding day.
– They prepare while waiting for the birth of a child.
– They prepare by buying a grave, waiting for their own death.
But they do not prepare for Salvation, the new heaven and the new earth.
We prepare as we wait to receive everything we’ve ever wanted.
When we want something material, we prepare ourselves for the material.
When what we want is spiritual, we will prepare for the spiritual.
– Noah prepared as he waited for the flood.
– John the Baptist prepared the way as he waited for the Lamb of God.
– The five wise virgins were prepared to wait for their Groom.
– The Lord Jesus prepared his disciples to wait for His death, resurrection and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
We must be prepared for the return of our Lord TODAY.
What have you been preparing yourself for?
Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3.13
