Have we time to spare?
Have we time to spare? you do not even know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Have we ignored warning signs to our own peril? There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves. Have we become so comfortable in our palatial palaces and ivory towers that we fail to notice the instability, the greed, the pretense in our midst? His speech was smooth as butter, yet war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords. Have we relegated God to a benevolent doting old grandfather or a long-suffering docile benefactor; an Aladdin with a magical lamp granting wishes disguised as prayers? Have we allowed the ways of the world to determine, to influence our view of God? Do we seek His Word to lead and guide or do we consult the horoscope, phone a friend or roll the dice? Do we continue to do the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome? The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? “I the LORD search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”
Time is running out, we have no time to spare, no time to waste. Jesus will return; today, tomorrow, next month, next year…it matters not. Jesus will return, and millions are not ready. Millions think themselves ready, millions are deceived, misguided and fooled. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with Me. Is your faith based on ‘biblical, foundational Truth’ or have you taken a step back from Christianity to embrace the world system of “doing church” in hopes of finding a better fit for you and your family? These questions demand answers; answers that can only be found as you seek His face within the pages of His Word. Seek the LORD while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked man forsake his own way and the unrighteous man his own thoughts; let him return to the LORD that He may have compassion, and to our God, for He will freely pardon…
