Ready or Not...

When you and I were just rugrats, little did we know that one of our childhood games would be a harbinger of our time on earth.  Remember burying your head in the living room couch pillows, counting to a hundred while your playmates scampered to find their own obscurity?  As you reached “…90, 91, 92…’ you amped up and sprinted to “…99, 100!” so you could shout, “Ready or not, here I come!”

1965 gave us “People, Get Ready,” recorded by some of music’s top soul singers.  What are you getting ready for?  What are you hiding from?  What are you seeking?  What will prepare you for what’s coming?

The One who loves you most, and proved it by laying down His life for you, said, “Behold, I come quickly.”

Will you be ready?

Or not.
