Are you ready to meet Him?

18 Dec


1 Peter 1:16, “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

A personal question that we as Disciples of Christ should continually ask ourselves is, “Am I ready to meet the Father?” Sometimes in our walk with the Lord we have the tendency to put holiness on everything except our own lives. The sacred purification process no matter where you are in your walk with Christ whether amateur or veteran always rest on holiness. Biblical Holiness is defined as being set apart from the world, consecrated to the Word of God. Upon the Lord’s return He is looking for those without spot or wrinkle, stated in Ephesians 5:27, “That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”

Even though while we are in the flesh no perfection can be found, in accepting Jesus Christ we are offered grace and mercy for when we do fall short. Even though we cannot attain this perfection we must still strive for it unless the Cross of Christ is made to no effect in our lives, 1 Corinthians 1:17. Holiness is not acting as if we are perfect but relying on the perfect sacrifice of the Messiah and thus reflecting it in our own personal lives.

A few standards to live by are recorded in Romans 13:11-14, “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” I pray that by walking in the light and striving for perfection in the presence of our sinful nature, the true glory of God will be revealed. In return making all who believe worthy to meet the divine Savior, Shalom…
