Will your temple be ready for an unannounced dinner with Jesus, or must you tell Him to wait outside until you tidy up? Or would you tell Jesus to come another day when your temple is clean?
Why would we not be ready for a surprise visit from Jesus? Is it because we are in the midst of sin or in an unrepented state? Are we harboring hatred and malice in our hearts? What about jealousy? Pride? Envious?
Harboring an unforgiving spirit? Entertaining wolves in sheep clothing? Would we rush and mop away lustful thoughts? Or run to cover the entrance way with a rug to hide hypocrisy?
What about scripturizing with thankfulness and obeying His laws. Are we always striving to be ready for the unannounced second coming of Jesus like we prepare for everything else we deem important? Our temple should always be scripturize in steadfastness in the faith and not overcome with evil but with good.
The door of the Holy Spirit should always be ready for Jesus. Would you really miss having dinner with Him? Ready or not, Jesus is returning like a thief in the night without knocking on doors. Therefore, let us scripturize our minds in loving God and loving Him and one another.
