NO MORE TIME
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
1 Corinthians 15:52 KJV
Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote the beautiful heart touching and inspiring hymn “The King Is Coming”. If I had to choose of all the hymns I love, I would say this is my favorite hymn because one day the King is coming. When Jesus comes back for us, we won’t have any more time to get our heart right with God.
We won’t have any more time to ask our family or the people we have hurt to forgive us or to tell the people we love how much we love them and appreciate them. May God help us to realize the importance of being ready because Jesus can come back for us even while you are reading this devotion.
Have you told your parents and children how much you love them today? It doesn’t matter how old our parents are or if our children are married, it is important that we let them know how much we love them and appreciate them. Have we told our parents we appreciate all the sacrifices they have made for us?
Most important of all, is our heart right with God or have we allowed bitterness, unforgiveness, criticism and sarcasm to remain in our heart? When He looks in our heart, is He pleased with the things in our heart or do they hurt Him and break His heart? Each one of us needs to search our heart.
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us and for Jesus. I pray for all who are hurting. Please encourage and comfort them. I love You, dear Father. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
