There are times we realize life is short. We recognize that middle age or old age has arrived without our permission. Or perhaps we open the Bible and are reminded that no matter our stage of life, tomorrow is not promised or guaranteed. Instead we are told that our transient existence on this earth is like a mist, a vapor, a temporary loan from God, which can be revoked at any time. And add to that God’s word tells us that the entire focal point of redemptive history is the any-moment return of Christ, the establishment of his kingdom and the consummation of the ages.
Today might be our last. This could be our final hour. These are more than thought-provoking slogans, these are truthful assessments of the reality in which we live. So, are you living this day with eternity in view? Is there unfinished spiritual business that needs your attention? Are you ready to meet your Savior face-to-face? Are all of your plans made in light of the fact that tomorrow we might be in the presence of our King?
