Every year we take time in December to remember the birth of Jesus, but that’s not where the story ends. Jesus’ time on earth is limited; He’s headed towards heaven the moment He arrives in the manger. The thing is, we all are. None of us knows the number of days we will be blessed with on this earth; when we will be heaven bound.
When a musician gets ready for a major performance, they do something every day to better themselves and their craft. They always have the final goal in mind. When the performance arrives, they know what they’ve worked for, and walk on the stage with confidence.
How will we walk to the gates of Heaven? Of course we won’t be worthy to be in front of our Heavenly Father, but will we feel like we have done all we could on the days on earth that we have? Use the Christmas season as a time to reevaluate your priorities, and make sure you are preparing for the “big event.”
“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.”
