Christians: When you meet Jesus, what is the first thing you want to do?

I know that as a very imperfect human being, and being saved only by the grace of God, I will fall on my face and be unable to look at my LORD. I know it is His grace and His mercy that will bring me to that point. When I recover to the point of being able to speak with Him, it will be so very long before I can say enough to express my gratitude. Although I thank Him often for His compassion and forgiveness, I still feel awed at the prospect of someday being able to thank Him face to face? I can hardly wait... I often face the dilemma that Paul did, about wanting to be with Him and needing to be with those who he shared relationships on Earth. Somehow I envy those who pass before me, like my Dad, my uncles, aunts, friends, and mentors, people like Rev. Jerry Falwell... They are where I want to be... I know someday I will have that peace, and there will be no more physical pain or emotional confusion in my life. Until then, I will continue to speak with Him from here on Earth, and share His Love with my family, friends and acquaintances who know Him and need to know Him.

I feel like I will do the same thing fall down at His feet and worship Him. I want to praise Him for what He has done for me. He not only forgave me but He has provided for me He brought me together with a very Godly man and I just want to thank Him for that. I also want to see my friends and family who have gone on before but like the song "Thank you" says I just want to see Jesus.

The very first thing I will do? I will probably just stand in awe and just stare at Him for a long time. Finally meeting the one that we have been enduring for for such a long time. Finally seeing the master and creator of the universe. Just stand there. All the hardships, trials, persecutions....It all comes down to this moment. Its all worth it....

The thing is, you are 200 per cent right. The problem is that this word AWE and the word AWESOME have been so overused that the world no longer knows what they really mean. And only the FATHER SON AND HOLY SPIRIT God is worthy of our praise and our Awe.

Thanks for the comment. I agree that the word awesome is just kinda thrown around now a days...But the true meaning of the word awe is basically to be so amazed you are just speechless. You really don't know what to do. Awe struck....

That's why God gave us dogs you know...to show us what it is like to be accepted for who we are, no matter what.

I forgot to add: That's why Adam named the dog as he did. Dog is a REFLECTION of GOD ('s) love for us. Like God, a dog loves us completely no matter how we talk to him or treat him. Of course in the perfect world of the garden that was always true. It wasn't until the fall that the dog learned to be mean and fierce or fearful of the person who mistreated him. Even now, so many years after the fall, it sometimes takes many times before the dog does become mean or afraid. God like qualities given to the dog in the beginning run deep just as the good qualities of man run deep. We were created that way. Dogs just have never been corrupted so much as to make them turn away from LOVE so completely that they forget what LOVE is.

I think the first thing I would do is acknowledge him and give him the praise that he deserves.

The first thing I want to do when I meet Jesus, I will ask Him to forgive all of my sins. I will also ask Him if He can offer me advice so that I can go to heaven. I am very grateful for His salvation, compassion and forgiveness but I don't feel that His salvation alone is enough to release all of my sins without begging and asking Him directly.

You will feel only grateful before Him. Since there is no worry or sadness in Heaven... I don't think there can be regret. We will arrive before Him, washed and forgiven.

I would thank him for all that he has done, and i would apoligise for the years i did stuff that i forever regret doing. Then I would finally be reunite with my passed on lovedones and share all of my life's stories with them and lt them know that i never forgot about them. And then we party! I would tell them my children and my grandchildren know them all by my stories i remembered when being with them on earth. And then I would wait on my loved ones on earth and pray they ask for forgivness for their sins before they make their trip to heaven. And then we party!

I'd probably be in awe. And fall on my knees. Then kiss his feet and embrace him.

I would continue to thank him and worship him for giving his life so that we could have eternal life with him. I would kiss his feet then rise and kiss his hands for he deserves to worshipped that way.

I have never felt any human was worthy of kisses on the feet, but I would be honored to be able to kiss Jesus' feet.

Perfect. I am sure even if we plan to the detail, when the moment comes, we will not know for sure what we will do and how we will react.
