You Must Meet God

You must meet with God! Are you ready? You may try to avoid Him while you live, but you must meet Him when you die. You must meet Him as you emerge from "the dark valley" and the "swellings of Jordan!" You will meet by His appointment, for "it is appointed unto men to die." God knows, and has settled the very day and hour. He has not told you the time, and He may give no warning of its approach. Should not this move you to think of being prepared for it?
And mark, my friend, you will not meet Him as a mere unit in a crowd—you will not meet Him unnoticed in the multitude that throng the thoroughfare of death.
No! you must turn aside from all, and have a personal interview with God, the Judge of all.
We have seen many, as they departed from the land of the living unto the other world; but we were not permitted to look in after them, and ascertain the nature of that meeting; and as no one has returned to acquaint us with the solemnities of that interview, when we ourselves depart, the whole experience will be new to us.
Friend, soon your personal interview with the holy God will take place. Are you ready? Are you a new creature in Christ? Have you the wedding garment? A warning is sounding in your ears, listen to it. How deep is its voice, —"Prepare to meet thy God."
