If Jesus Came Back Today

by Jason Kirk Bartley

If Christ came back today,
would you really be ready to go,
or would you ask Him to come back in just a day or so?
Are you walking in His righteousness at
this very hour,
or have you been idle and your ways have gotten sour?
Would you gain His stamp of approval,
and have done your very best,
to lead others to Jesus,
or have you failed His test?
Are you joyful, and loving,
with His precious peace,
or have you began to cheat and steal to get one over on people to say the least?
Have you been watching and waiting for
His coming to be very soon,
or have you fallen asleep and will miss the trumpets tune?
Are you walking with our Master each and
every day,
or are you headed for disaster in which there’s hell to pay?
Would He find you a trustworthy servant if He came back today,
or would He find you guilty without a word to say?
Jesus is coming back for His faithful few,
who have not deserted Him, but their hearts have remained true!
If Christ were to come back today,
would He say, “Well done my good and faithful servant enter in,” 
or would He tell you to depart from Him because you stayed in sin?
