“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” (James 4:14)
“I’ve lived in a fairy tail world for long enough it’s time to wake up!” If you haven’t told yourself this you should really say it now. Life is too short to live on our own wishes and dreams, we were put on earth for a reason, we are here to glorify God and not man we are here to please him and not us. We are bigger then this because he is. We need to decide who we are for and we need to do it now.
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, chose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods or the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15)
How many times was there an opportunity for you to do something that you didn’t do. You only get that chance once, so how many times is it going to take you before you stop talking and start doing?
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” (James 1:22)
God didn’t show us mercy so that we could set around and play the game of life. Life isn’t a game, it’s time Christians start acting on what “they believe.” Christianity isn’t sitting in a pew and nodding your head, Christianity is standing in the front lines of battle and fighting for your captain. Don’t ask why…just do it.
“And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matt 28: 18-20)
There’s no time in there to “sit around” or to think about what you are going to do, or to worry about what you’re going to eat. There is only time to obey, now. I find that so many Christians believe that they have done their part when they “chose” Christ. But you didn’t “chose” Christ, Christ chose you! Your part is to glorify and obey him your WHOLE life, not a part of it or maybe when you’re older but your WHOLE life.
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die…” (Ecc 3:1-2)
There’s only one chance you have to live, most people would say then live well, but I say, live right. If you have only one chance to live but all of eternity to reap your reward I think living righteously is always best.
So in conclusion, live for God, don’t waist time, and live right.
If you had time to accomplish one thing, what would you chose?
It’s time to make the decision that few Christians today are making, the choice to stand with Christ!
