The Surprise Visit

This morning we were finishing breakfast, when the front door opened and we heard a voice say "are you ready for us?"  I gave my husband a surprised look, as we peeked around the corner to the front door and saw our real estate agent looking through our door! It was 8:00 in the morning, and, um, no, I was not ready! We were expecting him and the 20 other agents that were tagging along with him to come at 6 pm, not 8 am!! My husband quickly made his way to the front door, as I made a quick escape upstairs to whisk away any dirty clothes that might me laying around on the bedroom floor. My husband told him that we were expecting him that evening, not in the morning, but he said that they always come in the morning. So, he waited outside for a couple minutes while we did a couple quick touch ups, and then we let them all in.  They all commented on how nice our house smelled, we had just had pancakes so that was a bonus.  The guys liked the basket ball hoop in the foyer, and one guy wanted to have a conversation about how the church these days does not hold people accountable, he read the verse on my wall, the master bedroom was a hit, as well as several other things. But, the big question is, will it sell?
We were caught by surprise and it reminded me of the verse in Revelation 3:3

"So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you."

God has blessed me with His Word, I have heard it. His children have heard it. I have ample opportunity to receive His Word, keep it in my heart, and repent of anything I need to repent of.  If I do not make this choice, the choice to let truth penetrate my heart, and be revealed, then I will not be awake, and He will come like a thief and I will be surprised and unprepared.
In verse 5 it says this:

"He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before the Father and before His angels."

To overcome is to receive His Word, keep it, and repent. To overcome is to be awake and know that He is coming!
Say That Again, Father, You will clothe me in white garments and write my name in the book of life, You will hear my name! Say That Again, Lord of Lords and King of Kings!
