What About Time?

We are all on the clock of time, and we do not know when the midnight hour will strike and we enter a new day in heaven and immortal glory by the grace of God. Time is made up of years, weeks, days, hours, and seconds; but no matter the measure, it swiftly passes by, and we wonder what happened to the time.  James says, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” (James 4:14).  One third of this year will have expired at the end of this day on April 30, and we may wonder what happened to the time? It has always been the same time, but our perspective of time may have been changed. Guess what? It changed over time. How ironic that is! We would be wise to serve God each day with the utmost zeal because there may be no tomorrow in this life. Solomon said, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” (Eccl. 9:10). God started time as far as man is concerned in Gen. 1:1 when the scripture declares, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” The same God shall also declare that time is no longer. (Rev. 10:6). I hope we haven’t drifted off to sleep as concerning serving the Lord. If we have, may we heed the apostle Paul as he writes to the Roman church, “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.” (Rom. 13:11). The clock is ticking so let us take advantage of the precious time we have to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. Jesus isn’t here to love in person, but His people are; so let us love them and minister to them, and it will manifest how much we love the Lord. It will be time well spent. May we all remember that once it is spent or gone, it cannot be recaptured.–April 30, 2012–Elder Larry Wise
