Do you love when you are expecting company? Or does it stress you out?! When we are having visitors, we do a lot of preparing. We clean our bathrooms, kitchen, den, and vacuum the areas. We make sure our house smells good. And perhaps we put on some good clothes.
I cannot help ask, how are we preparing for THE Visitor? The One who is coming back soon? Of course, I’m talking about Jesus returning for His Church. What are we doing? Are we preparing for Him more than we are for other guests? Are we cleaning…our minds, souls, speech, actions? Are we making sure we are a pleasing aroma to God? We should be!
Sometimes we get so busy in our lives that we don’t remember Jesus IS coming soon. I know I let things get in the way of that fact. I make the events in my life more important than remembering His coming for me is THE most important thing I should be focusing on.
So, from now on, I’m going to try…TRY…to turn my focus to Him more. I’ll still have things to do. We all do, but I want to let things go more. Don’t sweat the small stuff, as they say. It’s going to be hard, but I pray for wisdom from God and His help. It will be a daily struggle, but I have to try.
I don’t want a dirty ‘house’ when He returns for me!
