How short? We do not know. We are not guaranteed a certain amount of time on this earth.
I often think to myself,
"Lord, can you please let me give the crystal ball just one quick look!"
" Just how long do I have?"
"How long can I party, and live it up before I really have to start living and witnessing for you?"
I think we have all been in a spot where we felt we were invincible. We could conquer the world and
nothing was going to stand in our way. Unfortunately, something does stand in our way. Time!!!!!! We
have a limited amount of it. As Christians we need to be using it wisely to be His disciples to spread His
I was reminded of this recently as I drove to a viewing for a friend's dad. Time can be an enemy or a friend. I mean, we need to be stewards of the time God has given us to use for Him. I wish when I lost my dad at his viewing I would have taken that time to share Gods plan of salvation with more people. Sure, I said he is in a better place he is going to be in Heaven because I know that is where he was going. But really Ang, come on you can do better. That is what I bet my dad would have sat up and said to me if he could have and after I picked myself up off the ground I would have said, "Yep!" People, the song that says time is on our side is not the case. Time is limited, I am afraid. Look around read the obituaries. Too many people are dying tragic deaths and at various ages. Our own kids are being touched by death, a reality that from which we wish we could protect them. We do not understand why God takes some people and not others. Why do drunk drivers survive and teens die? Why does cancer take so many lives and so many teens die so young. WHY WHY WHY????? The answer is God has a plan and we are not always privy to the why but the response we need to have is that God gives a command to go and tell others Matt 28:19-20.
Let’s do it peeps. Let's go and tell people about Jesus. Tell our family, tell our friends, and tell our non-
friends. We need to be ready for Jesus to come back. I know there are people that are not ready. People
that I may be able to reach but only by the grace of God. Who is ready to go and reach the people
around us? Time is not on our side. BUT the TIME is now and God is waiting for us to make the move.
He will give us courage and the words to say. Let’s go CommUNITY Church. It is time to be a witness for
