Are you ready for His coming?

SONG: The day is coming when the Lord will come in the clouds to gather the faithful to Himself. What am I doing now to prepare myself for that day?

Ready for Jesus!

We know the day is coming when the Lord will come in the clouds to gather the faithful to Himself, first those who are asleep in Him, and then those who are alive and remain. (1 Thessalonians 4:16.) The question is, am I ready for Jesus? What am I doing now to prepare myself for that day? The days we are living in are a time of grace that we must use to make ourselves ready for His coming, by living wholly for Him.

“Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:17.

The author of this song, Mary Pedersen, wrote this appeal from her heart to all those who long to be with Jesus and want to be ready to meet Him when that day comes.

Lyrics: Are you ready for His coming?

Are you ready for His coming?
Are you ready for His coming?
Are you ready for His coming?
Soon He’ll come to fetch His bride.
Soon He’ll come to fetch His bride.

Are you with His holy people?
Are you with His holy people?
Are you with His holy people
Who for Jesus give their lives,
Who for Jesus give their lives.

Have you nothing else but Jesus?
Have you nothing else but Jesus?
Have you nothing else but Jesus?
Is the world no longer dear?
Is the world no longer dear?

Will you buried be with Jesus?
Will you buried be with Jesus?
Will you buried be with Jesus,
Die and bear much fruit for Him?
Die and bear much fruit for Him?

Blest are those who follow Jesus,
Blest are those who follow Jesus,
Blest are those who follow Jesus,
Whom He purchased from the earth.
Whom He purchased from the earth.
