I noticed this statement one day while reading a Christian periodical: “If the Lord Jesus did not come where we were (into this world), we could never go where He is (the Father’s house).”
It brought to mind a similar statement by another writer: “On the cross He prepared His people for the place; His presence in the glory prepared the place for His people.”
Yes, everything has been done that could and can be done, and as a result there is a wonderful place called heaven, or the Father’s house, all prepared and waiting for the moment when the Lord will call His redeemed ones home to Himself.
There is no further preparation on God’s part. He says, “Behold, I have prepared … all things are ready: come” (Matthew 22:4). The question is, Are you prepared?
Amos said, “Prepare to meet thy God” (Amos 4:12).
The Lord Jesus said, “Therefore be ye also ready” (Matthew 24:44).
He came where we were — He has made full preparation, but are you prepared? Do you know Him as Saviour? Will you go where He is when you leave this world?
