Are You Ready?

There are a large number of Bible passages that speak of the return of Jesus Christ of Nazareth back to earth again. I wonder what it would be like if He were to come today. The following verses give us a striking mental picture of the excitement and perhaps fear that will be exhibited when He comes.
Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:11-16
There are a few questions, two of which stand out. “What if he were to return today?” “Are you ready?” And a third one floats upon my brain, “What about those, whom you love, are they ready?”
To be ready one should have all his sin forgiven. One should have all grudges or bitterness left aside, dealt with and removed. Debts should be paid. A life of holiness lived.
Happy living ready for His return.
