Today, prepare to meet the Lord, for He says “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Matthew 18:20). My brother, my sister, if you were invited to meet the highest authority (king, queen or president) of your country today. You would have been preparing for your outfit since last week; you would have been asking people questions because you do not want to go in front of that authority and mess up; you would have been so happy and proud for being chosen and have that opportunity that it would have been a thrilling day for you.
Now, the Bible says Jesus is above all authorities in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18). You are preparing to meet Him when attending a church service at your local church today. And you are doing it as a routine? No! Today, prepare yourself to meet your Lord, the who can say a word and your whole life can change. Many believers go to church just to go to church, and they return home the way they had gone in the first place… just because they did not prepare themselves for this encounter with the Lord. This is no longer be your case in Jesus’ name. Having knowledge of the Word of God without doing the right thing means nothing! Today, be led by God’s Spirit to change your bad habits as regards the way you prepare to meet Him in church… this should be a thrilling moment you anticipate by preparing yourself.
The Lord is asking you to open the door of your heart to Him, so that He can enter: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me” (Revelation 3:20). Zacchaeus opened his door by preparing to meet Jesus in a way that no other person did among those who were waiting for the Lord to pass on that street (Luke 19:1-10), Jesus entered his house, and Zacchaeus and his family were saved. My friend, Jesus wants to see a special love from you, a special worship, a special way of showing Him that, for you, He is indeed the King of kings, and the Lord of lords that you keep confessing with your mouth. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
