What if today is our last?
I noticed three police cars lined up by the bank. I inquired of the teller. He explained that they line up there for funerals. I then remembered the obituary a friend had sent me of a woman, a daughter of the King. She “suddenly” made her exodus to the face of the Father. She was only 60. Most would’ve thought that she had many more days ahead. She would have thought it, too. It caused me to pause.
We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. What are we to do with our time? How can we live more fully? More importantly, how can we grasp more fully the deep love, grace, and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ? How can we grow in sure confidence that He holds us fast? How can we then spread His love and light?
There will come a time for all of us when our time here is done. We don’t know the number of our days.
Ponder these things with me. Don’t waste another minute. Seek the face of the Father. Be assured of His love for you. It’s with a whisper we admit our ongoing need and it’s in a hurry the Savior comes to meet us. Live life fully, TODAY. The time is NOW!
John the Baptist called out from the wilderness, “Clear the way for the Lord, remove the obstacles; Make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God.” (Isaiah 40:3)
Answer the call. Take the time. Clear the obstacles. Hear the Voice of Truth. Let the highway of your heart be overtaken and the desert places in your soul be filled, paving the way for your eternal future and your purpose in the present.
“I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, and that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:16-19)
God Bless You Abundantly! Amen & Alleluia.
