2 Peter 3:14 (NET) Therefore, dear friends, since you are waiting for these things, strive to be found at peace, without spot or blemish, when you come into his presence.
Derek had a dream in which he saw the Lord Jesus return, but he was not prepared and was not raptured. It was not a good experience. He woke up with so much fear and terror that he could not eat. He thus went into a fast and started examining his ways and making the appropriate adjustments. There were relationships he knew he had to sever, inordinate affections he had to terminate, unjust business dealings he had to forsake, and laziness towards the things of God he had to repent of. His neighbors and friends called him pastor, but he knew that he was not truly ready for the Lord’s return. But after he made the right adjustments and began to live in the expectation of the Lord’s return (which motivates holiness), his friends and neighbors did not merely call him pastor, many of them were now convicted and brought to the point of repentance because of the Lord’s glory that was now radiating through Derek’s life
Unfortunately, many believers are like Derek who needed a wake-up call to be alert and live ready for the Lord’s return. Living ready does not mean living in fear and uncertainty, it means you’re living in faith and having a clear conscience before God and before man. It means you’re living in obedience to the Lord and there is no known sin staining your spiritual garment.
Go into today remembering that God has supplied all the grace you need to keep your garment spotless and free from every blemish. A blemish is an imperfection you were born with, but a spot is an imperfection you adopt along the way. The blood of Jesus is strong enough to deal with both spots and blemishes. The key is remaining in Christ.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me always live ready for your coming. Deliver me from every manipulation of the devil.
