Have you ever gotten to meet someone REALLY important? Maybe someone famous, like your favorite actor or actress.
My closest brush with fame was probably meeting a ballplayer or something, so I don't have much experience in this area. I do know this, if I had the opportunity to meet someone really famous, or really important, I'd want to get ready.
Like him or not, if we had the chance to meet the President- we'd wear our best.
Brit or not, if we could meet the Queen of England, we'd really dress up.
I know we're kind of living in a "dress-down" culture now, but let's admit it, if we were getting ready to meet someone famous, or someone really important, we would take extra care to make sure we were ready, right?
Well did you know that God is the most famous & important person we will ever meet? Psalm 135:13 says “Your name, O Lord, endures forever, Your fame, O Lord, throughout all generations.”
When we do meet him, I suppose we ought to be ready, right? But how do do you get ready to meet God?
Well, one thing's for sure, God doesn’t care what we wear. He doesn't care how you're dressed. 1 Samuel 16:7 says "the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
For us to get ready to meet God, we have to make sure our hearts are right with him.
