Like the World Is Going to End

Posted: April 06, 2017

Ben Rector, in his song “Like the World is Going to End,” writes:

“If we found out that the world was gonna end on Tuesday morning, what would everybody do? It's funny how the thought of that can make some things real important, and a lot of things seem pretty worthless too.”

Wouldn’t it be interesting if we knew which day would be our last? Would we live differently if we knew that tomorrow, we (or someone we love) were going to die?

The truth is, we are not promised tomorrow, and time is ticking for the mercy of God. We only have the span of our life on earth to turn to the Lord, and to share His hope of eternal life with those around us. If you feel the prompting of the Holy Spirit to make things right with God, or to share His Good News with your neighbor, don't ignore it! Everyone has a final day coming. Don't let today pass without making God your priority, because you may not see tomorrow!

“On the day Jonah entered the city, he shouted to the crowds: “Forty days from now Nineveh will be destroyed!”
- Jonah 3:4 NLT

Lord, thank you for the hope of salvation I have through Jesus Christ. Help me to live with urgency, sharing your Good News with those around me. In Jesus' name, amen.
