Be Ready

by Paul Mayes Jamar

2 Peter 2:10-14

Will we be ready when the day of the Lord comes?
As a thief in the night, the heavens shall pass away and the suns.

With a great never heard before noise it will melt in fervent heat,
the Earth will also follow, and its work burned up like wheat.

What manner of person shall we be on that day?
But holy in a relationship with God, not gone astray.

Looking forward to the day of the Lord’s coming
with a new Heaven and Earth, where righteousness is becoming.

To be found with God in peace, and blameless,
without spot as the Lamb of God is, shameless.

To be anxious to see the Lord’s return to us,
and receive a crown for looking forward to this.

Forever, we shall be with Jesus Christ
as a free gift of grace so reasonably priced.

Come Christians, rejoice in such wonderful news
of the world being set right by the King of the Jews.
