"Time is Running Out "

"Jesus said, 'I will be with you a little longer. ...'" John 7:33a

People are divided over Jesus. Some believe in Him. Others don't. Many are undecided. Jesus warns them to make up their mind: "I will be with you a little longer."

I learned that lesson the hard way when I was 19. One Friday afternoon my boss handed me my paycheck on the way home. A couple hours later he collapsed at his bowling alley and died. My chance to talk to him, learn from him, and reach out to him was gone forever.

Soon Jesus will be gone. He will die on a cross and be buried. After three days He will rise again, but the vast majority will never see Him again-only a few select believers God will choose to be witnesses of His resurrection to the world.

The clock is ticking for us too. Each of us has only a limited amount of time before we die and our chance to find salvation through faith in Jesus Christ ends forever. But often we are content with the way life is going. Or we think it doesn't matter what you believe, God will be satisfied if you just try to live a good life.

But that is a false hope and a false comfort. God has provided only one way to save us, and that is through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus satisfied God's holiness and justice by taking our sins on Himself and suffering and dying in our place on the cross. No one else could do it. Now is the time to come to Him and walk in His light.

THE PRAYER: Lord, draw me to You while there is still time. Shine in my life that others may turn to the Light of the world, while they still have time. Amen.
