Time is a deceptive cushion to our minds.
We are led to believe that we always have more available to us and that we control our time.
We share our plans and pursuits for the next year without even thinking that we might not be here to make those plans happen.
TRAGEDY is that horrible waking, gasping for your breath, reality check.
It can take us from laughing to wailing in seconds of time. Time continues, life on this planet does not always, BUT, eternity never ceases.
God is not a creator of tragedy, He is not a killer, our Father is a healer, and life-giver. He can take what the enemy, and life, meant for bad, and bring some redemptive purpose to the chaos.
OUR GREATEST REALITY must be that we keep our eternity (the longest portion of real life) at our highest priority.
This is not our HOME, we are here for PURPOSE!
Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives. (1 Peter 2:11, 12 MSG)
So let’s go outside, where Jesus is, where the action is—not trying to be privileged insiders, but taking our share in the abuse of Jesus. This “insider world” is not our home. We have our eyes peeled for the City about to come. Let’s take our place outside with Jesus, no longer pouring out the sacrificial blood of animals but pouring out sacrificial praises from our lips to God in Jesus’ name. (Hebrews 13:13-15 MSG)
This world is getting more evil as time ticks by us. If there is ever a time to hold your babies, and pray with them, make sure they know Jesus, it’s now. One breath we are here, the next, we are in eternity. Make sure your loved ones know Jesus.
The sickness, depravity, demonically cultivated evil to murder babies in a school will never be fixed by laws from a government, they can only be fixed from the laws of life in Christ Jesus. We the church, the body of Christ, the sons and daughters of the Almighty are the salt and light in this world.
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage. (Matthew 5:13 MSG)
BE SALTY TODAY, WHILE IT IS CALLED TODAY……..Help secure eternity for the people you love!
