If you are reading this, God has given you another day on this earth. You can see the clouds floating in the sky, hear the birds in the trees, smell the roses, and tell someone you love them. We don’t know if we will be able to do these things tomorrow. Paul told the Philippians that while he preferred to go ahead and go on to heaven, he also wanted to stay a little longer on earth to serve them (Philippians 1:21-26). We have earthly service to attend to and tasks on earth to do for Jesus.
Christ wants to rescue souls, do you? I don’t worry about whether people have joy and peace, I don’t have to. Knowing Christ is how they will find any peace or any joy in this life. So first, they would have to meet Christ. Not all will believe, but Christ came for all, every one. We have to talk to everyone. I gain nothing from doing this that I know of. If God decides to bless me later, that’s His decision, and never because of anything that I have done. As a follower of Christ, because He cares, I care very much whether someone else’s soul is forever separated from the One who created that soul. God wants every soul with Him.
So we have another day. Don’t waste it in sin, depression, self-pity, busyness, or laziness, for this is the day that the Lord has made! It may be getting late…make haste.
