Time is short. Jesus could return tomorrow. If not, we’re still not guaranteed tomorrow. But what if you live another fifty years? Time is still short from an eternal standpoint. We need to be tuned into God’s priorities. We need to align our prayers with His kingdom. And then we need to pour our lives into others.
Sin can destroy every aspect of your life. But Jesus’ finished work on the cross is greater than the power of sin. He is able save you and cleanse you of all unrighteousness. But you have to ask Him.
Josiah was the final “good” king of Judah. He began to reign at eight years old, and he died at 39. But in those 31 years he impacted his nation greatly for God. This is more than just an historical profile, however. The account of Josiah’s life and reign has much to teach Christians today.
We never know when the Lord will lead us to talk with someone about Him. It may with an individual who is searching for answers, or someone who thinks they know everything. He could want to us to correct an erring believer or witness to an unbeliever. Because we cannot know when those opportunities will come, we need to be ready all the time.
