Milliseconds to Eternity - Tuesday, October 9th 2012
1 Corinthians 15:58
"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord."
What if you knew that within 24 hours the world was coming to an end? Would it change your perspective on life? Would it change what you did or who you talked to? It may not be something we think about often, but when we take a moment to reflect on these things, it can open our eyes to the brevity of life and God's imminent return.
Matthew 24:27 "For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be." NKJV
The typical lightning bolt travels at 3,700 miles per second. While it may travel a long distance, this line of electricity is only seen for tenths of a second. According to God's Word, our Lord is to return in the same manner. In three-tenths of a second, our lives will forever be changed. It could be today, it may be years from now but it will happen. Are you ready? Do you know Jesus as your Savior? If so, are you living for Him? He's coming quickly. He's coming in power. He's coming with rewards. Again I ask, are you ready?
Life Lesson: We should live ready. We should live knowing that life one day will suddenly, absolutely and radically change.
Thank You for the Truth of Your return. What a blessing to know that One day You will come to make all things right and to give us new bodies so that we can serve You for eternity. Lord, help me to not wait until then but to begin serving You here. Give me the power through your Holy Spirit to live a steadfast, immovable life of service to You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
