A Believers life is a journey to eternal life. A Non-Believers life is a journey to eternal death. If you read and understand the Word of God and the times we live in and the FACT that you only have today, not tomorrow. Then how can you not have compassion for those you know and love who are lost and the fate they have unknowingly chosen that awaits them?
There are many regrets in my life represented by words and actions that I would take back if I could go back in time but I cannot. Living with emotional burdens is more than any of us fragile human beings can bear. As they rise up before us, they tend to cripple us. I have learned to give them to the one who came along side me to help me carry them.
But the burden within my soul to share the Gospel is the greatest of all. This burden is the one that I will carry with me all the way to the appointed time in the future when I stand alone before HIM. As He reviews each time He opened a door for me to witness that I did not go through I will shed uncontrollable tears.
Tears that His hands will wipe away, so that final burden will be released. I will enter His Kingdom leaving behind the memories of all those people I loved that never knew Him.
For now I am here, and I am constantly reminded that Today is the Day of Salvation. I cannot do anything for those I love that have died without knowing their Savior.
But today is mine….And today is yours…
And today belongs to those you love…
My prayer is that we use the day for HIM…
As a child of 7 I would impatiently ask my earthly Father during vacation trip’s ”Are we there yet, are we there yet….?”
The same is now true of me as an impatient Believer, as I see pre-written history unfold before my eyes exactly as predicted. I watch the road signs fly by faster and faster during my journey home. Each sign announces His Second and Final coming with anticipation to those that know HIM.
The last Words…Gods Words…spoken of in this monumental epic story from the Book of Genesis (the Book of Beginnings) through to the last Book of Revelation (the Book of New Beginnings) are all true; from the first Words “In the beginning GOD” to the last Word “AMEN”.
“He (Jesus) who testifies to these things (the end times revelation of the sequences of prophetic events) says…Surely (there is no doubt) I AM coming quickly”. AMEN (let it be so)
Even so (just as you described), Come (Quickly), Lord (My Sovereign KING) Jesus (HIS name means SALVATION).
Walk up the Stairs out of the Darkness that surrounds you, following Jesus one step at a time, as HE Lights your path Home to HEAVEN.
