THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, my elderly neighbor and his wife were told there would be a 45-minute wait for a table.
"Young man, we're both 90 years old," the husband said. "We may not HAVE 45 minutes."
They were seated immediately.
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.
As we get older we appreciate time more.
As George Younce, of The Cathedrals, used to say, "I have more years behind me than I have ahead of me."
Life is BRIEF. Look back over the years for a moment.
Remember when you learned to ride a bicycle?
Seems like only yesterday doesn't it?
Life is UNCERTAIN. None of us know when God may call an end to our time on this earth.
We are taught to plan for tomorrow, but we are also taught that we HAVE only today.
This day is a gift from God, and it is to be used for Him.
Forty-five minutes seems like such a short time compared to a whole day.
What can you do in forty-five minutes?
What can you do for God in forty-five minutes?
In forty-five minutes most people can shave, bathe, get dressed and eat breakfast.
In forty-five minutes most people can read seven chapters of the Bible.
In forty-five minutes most people can visit a lost friend and share the plan of salvation.
In forty-five minutes most people can visit a sick friend and pray with them.
In forty-five minutes most people can visit two Christian friends who were not in church last Sunday.
In forty-five minutes most people can write four "I MISSED YOU" cards to friends who weren't in Sunday School last week.
In forty-five minutes most people can call eight people and invite them to church.
Today's life may be tomorrow's vapor!
Take forty-five minutes of your day and use it for Jesus.
It'll give lasting and meaningful purpose to your whole day.
