“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved, but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Matthew 24:22
Is it just me or are the days are really shorter? As a matter of fact, this year seems as if it just got away from us. it is moving so fast that I can barely keep up with the months. But looking back on the word of God, we should not be startled or surprise because we were already forewarned about this. In the words of Jesus himself he told us in Matthew 24 that for the elect sake the days will be shortened.
What does this mean for us? Does it mean that we should just sit and wait for the inevitable? No, we cannot because the Bible says we should occupy until he comes (Luke 19:13). So, while we know that the days are being shortened, we should continue to evangelize (even more now than ever), live for others, love each other, and prepare ourselves for the return of Christ.
It is quite easy to become distracted especially if you are living in a fast city. But I can assure you that if you make it your duty to read and mediate on the word of God you will stay grounded, you will live in the world and not become like the world. I am here on vacation in New York and this is one place where you can easily go off course because of the constant hustle and bustle that this city demands. But amidst all the bright lights and the grandeur of NY or wherever you are living you can still remain grounded in Christ.
Jesus is coming back, and it is quite clear that the days are getting shorter. Do not waste another minute. Draw close to God, repent and be baptized and continue to live so that the light of Christ will shine through you.
Let us pray: Lord please forgive me of sins today. Thank you for your word. I am grateful for today and very thankful for all your blessings. Lord I know that the days are being shortened and soon you will return. I pray that I will be among those who are pointing others to you, so that they too will be saved in Jesus name. Amen. Until next time. God bless you.
