“Set Your House in Order”

BIBLE READING: 2 Kings 20-21
                As we already know from our readings over the last few days, King Hezekiah will become sick to the point of death.  However, due to his humility, God grants him fifteen more years into His service.  There is however a statement that Isaiah makes to the king that I feel is very significant for our lesson today.  Isaiah tells King Hezekiah “Set your house in order, for you shall die…”.  Although we know that the King does recover from his illness, in the end the King still dies.  In fact, we are all going to die!  James tell us that our life is like a vapor, it is here for a little while and then it vanishes away.  Our earthly life will end, but if we set our house in order, our eternal life will be much better.  You may ask, “What does it mean to set your house in order?”  The best way for me to explain it like this, when you hear that you have important company that is coming to stop by your house, you do your best to make sure you clean up all the filth.  Then, when they arrive, your house is clean and spotless, free form the filth.  Only in this case, your soul is the house and the company is Jesus.  He is going to stop by, you just don’t know when…it is best to have your house clean now so that if he were to come today…your soul would be free of the filth of this world.
