PostSubject: While We Still Have Today   Sat Apr 30, 2016 10:33 am

And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Romans 13:11

At many funeral services, you’ll find grieving friends and family members with deep regrets. If only I had…while he was still alive. If only I’d said…to her before she died. The “if only’s” and the sudden sense of our mortality can overwhelm.

Paul urges us to regard this swift passing of time in our lives by showing love to those around us, understanding that our days on this earth will come to an end. Jesus promised that He will return again to bring judgment and inaugurate the new heavens and the new earth. Are you ready for that?

"Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.” Romans 13:14. Paul also says, “live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature." Galatians 5:16. When we clothe ourselves with Christ, we will avoid forbidden behaviors we all know are wrong. We will instead use well the time we have been granted, seeking peace in relationships and honoring Him while it is still called today. Since we know Christ won the battle over sin for us, we are free to love others lavishly right now.

Insight: When someone dies that gave their life to Christ, there's good reason to rejoice. When another dies that kept their life for themselves, there's good reason to mourn. Jesus said to His disciples...For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for Me will find it. Matthew 16:25

Reader's Prayer: Dear God, Deep down I know what I have just read is the truth. The older I get, the more I notice that death is all around me. Help me...once and for all, to take this extremely important message to heart while I still have today. I want to lose my life for Christ...not save it for myself. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
