Soon and very soon
My King is coming
Robed in righteousness
And crowned in love
When I see Him
I shall be made like Him
Soon and very soon

Soon and very soon
See the procession
The angels and the elders
Round the throne
At His feet I lay
My crowns my worship
Soon and very soon

Soon, Hillsong

Sometimes I forget how soon I will see my Savior. Very soon, I will be in Heaven with my King; sooner than I really think. Taking that into perspective... I have less than 100 years left on this earth. Am I ready? What will I have to place before my King? Each of us who have accepted Christ as our Savior will go to Heaven, but only some of us will have crowns to lie at His feet. Your salvation isn't in peril by your works here on this earth, but your works do affect what you lay before God's throne. I know I don't want to stand in front of the Lord of the universe empty-handed.
What will I bring Him? Is there anything in my life that I have done that brings Him glory? Looking back at my life right now, I don't have much to give Him. Yeah, I've read my Bible, prayed... all the usual stuff. But have I seriously made a difference in this world? Have I really devoted my all to Christ? Has anything I've done brought Him infinite honor? Have I taken credit and praise when I should have given it all to God? Have I neglected opportunities to share God's love? Considering all that makes me want to drop any useless, worldly obligations or desires I've ever had and give all my attention to the Lord. I want to bow before my Father's throne and say, "I surrendered all to you, Lord. I didn't waste my life; I made a difference for You; because You are worthy."

Revelation 4:10-11

They lay there crowns before the throne and say:

"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for You created all things,
and by Your will they were created
and have their being."

In His Love,
