“All of us must quickly carry out the task assigned us … for there is little time left before the night falls and all work comes to an end.” – John 9:4, TLB
When you’re a child, time is endless. As you grow older, it begins to fly. In later years, it’s a gift to be used wisely. When Jesus was thirty-three, the Master said, “I have finished the work which You have given Me to do” (John 17:4, NKJV). At 70, Paul said, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course” (2 Timothy 4:7). Let me ask you a question: Have you found the will of God for your life yet? There is not a more important question. If you want to know what His will is, ask Him. As you wait in His presence, I promise, He’ll reveal it to you.
The next question is: Are you doing the will of God? When your life ends, will you be able to say, “I have finished the work which You have given me to do?” Is your life making a difference? Will there be souls in heaven because you witnessed, prayed and gave so that they could hear the Gospel? Please think about this, for it is eternally important. One of America’s first missionary martyrs in the Amazon said, “He is not a fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.” Think about it!
