It Is Getting Late

Someone once humorously said, “It’s later than we think and most of us aren’t thinking.” How true that statement is for those realizing the days we live in.  Many people and sadly many Christians are living day to day like life will never end.  However, we are living closer today to the end of it all than we have ever been before.  Jesus left us with this promise: “Surely I am coming quickly” (Rev. 22:20 NKJV). Isn’t that an amazing statement by our Lord?  The last recorded message of Jesus to us in the New Testament is that he is coming soon.  At any moment, He is going to step out and call us home.  Oh, what a day that will be!  Yet, why is it that we live day in and day out like He is never going to come? I believe the answer is that we allow ourselves to become distracted.  We are distracted with the worries and cares and trinkets that occupy our attention.  What we need, though, is to fix our hearts to the times we live in.  It is drawing very late and we are running out of time to do the Lord’s service.  Let us each get busy about our Master’s work for tomorrow may be too late!
