Who would disagree that we live in evil times? We are commanded, as Christians, to stop living like we don't believe His coming is near and that the time is very close when we will be persecuted and even killed for even a hint that we belong to Christ. If we are alert and take every opportunity to shine His light now, we will be able to stand before Him with crowns to lay at His feet.
Heavenly Father, please help us to be more aware of the seriousness of shining Your light now, while we have the opportunity. May we be found doing Your work when You come for us. In Jesus' name.
Read Ephesians 5:15,16
"Be very careful then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil." (NIV)
"See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
redeeming the time, because the days are evil." (KJV)
