Rom. 13:11 Another reason for right living is that you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for the coming of our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
We need a wake-up call. I don't believe that we believe that it is late, that time is running out. Life goes on and we give very little serious thought to the fact that things are going to change. Life as it is known today just cannot continue. Mankind is out of control. Weapons of mass destruction are available and in the hands of unstable people. We have lost our sense of what is good for the common good. Self-interests are the rule of the day. We are lost and don't even know or care. Time is indeed running out.
We have been lulled to sleep by our modern world. We have the mindset that things will get better than they are simply because we are more knowledgeable and have the capabilities to do things that no previous generation has ever had.
God has made it very clear in His Word that things are going to change big time. He has the day set in heaven for Christ's return for the church. Each day draws us closer to that day. We have no guarantee for another breath, another tomorrow. The Lord's coming is a lot closer now than we can even imagine. World events and the mindset of mankind all point to His soon return.
We need to be very serious about this, lest He comes and catches us unprepared. We need to take good care of our souls and reach out to as many people as possible before He comes. Today is our day of salvation. If we wait until it's more convenient for us, that day may never come. Wake up! The day of salvation is soon upon us. Are you ready?
