I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
When you go on a trip, you must have your bags packed and be ready to move. In the same way, as followers of Christ, we’re going on a trip. We don’t know exactly when it will begin. It could be 20 years or 30 years from now. Or it could begin in 20 minutes or 20 seconds. That is why the Bible tells us to prepare to meet our God.
The prophet Isaiah said to King Hezekiah, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die, and not live'” (2 Kings 20:1).
Heaven is a prepared place for prepared people. The hope and promise to all Christians is that we have a place prepared for us by Jesus. He said, “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:2–3).
Are you prepared? Is your house in order right now? Are you ready? Maybe you’re saying, “What do you mean by ready? How does a person get ready?”
You get ready by having Christ in your heart and knowing your sin is forgiven, knowing your life is right with Him.
You don’t want to be living in a backslidden or compromised state. You want to be watching, ready, and alert—and even looking forward to the return of the Lord. In fact, I think that is something of a litmus test of your true spirituality. You will be homesick for Heaven. It is not that you have a death wish; it’s that you are homesick for Heaven.
Is your house in order? Are you ready to go? Then you won’t have to fear what happens beyond the grave.
