Sermon: Are you ready to go?

 Are you ready to go?

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 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

1. God is victorious...Don't lose heart

Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away (Jas. 4:14).
What man can live and not see death? Can he deliver his life from the power of the grave? (Ps. 89:48).
Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. He comes forth like a flower and fades away; He flees like a shadow and does not continue (Job 14:1-2).
No one has power over the spirit to retain the spirit, and no one has power in the day of death. There is no release from that war, and wickedness will not deliver those who are given to it (Eccl. 8:8).
And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment (Heb. 9:27).

1. We will battle enemies to the end 
2. It may seem like the enemy is ahead

2. If we are faithful to the end...Jesus will give us a crown of life

Revelation 2:10, which says, "Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor's crown."

In this verse, Jesus is addressing the church in Smyrna and encouraging them to remain faithful to him in the face of persecution and suffering. He acknowledges that they will face trials and persecution, but urges them to persevere and remain faithful, even to the point of death.

The promise of a "crown of life" is a symbolic reference to the reward that awaits those who remain faithful to Christ until the end. This reward is not a literal crown, but rather the eternal life and blessings that believers will receive in heaven as a result of their faithfulness.

This verse serves as an encouragement to believers to persevere in their faith, even in the face of difficult circumstances. It reminds us that our faithfulness to Christ has eternal significance and that our reward in heaven will far outweigh any trials or suffering we may experience in this life.

3. Being A Christian Is Demanding

Are we ready for the challenge of meeting Jesus’ expectations?
We are to be a living sacrifice like Jesus – “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” (Ro. 12:1-2)
It is true. You must give yourself up! - “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate [love less] his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life , he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.” (Lk. 14:26-27)
It is not so high a hurdle that we can’t meet it - “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Ph. 4:13)
