And Suddenly it was dark
It was a good day! I did everything “right”. I started off the day with Bible time and alone time with God. He prospered my time and I got a lot done that day. I was so grateful. But the hours flew by quickly and as I was working on one more thing, I realized that suddenly it was dark. Daylight had fled and night was upon me. I no longer had this day. This is the story of life:
- I think I have lots of time and my day may even go well, but suddenly the day ends and I cannot bring that day back. Did I redeem the time? Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Did I walk circumspectly? Ephesians 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
- On the other hand, you may think life is going so well. You are getting lots done and doing so many things that you never thought possible, but you have never turned to the Lord for salvation. You think everything is OK and that you are OK. 1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: Then suddenly, it is dark. Suddenly your beautiful day ended. And you ended up in darkness, alone and without Christ; without hope of eternity in heaven.
- Each day I realize more and more what a vapor life is and how important it is to walk with the Lord for today could be my last. Friend, are you ready for eternity? And if you are, are you living each moment to count for eternity? Don’t let darkness sneak up on you unawares. James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
