YOUR LAST DAY
Main Text: 1 Thessalonians 5:6 – So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled (NIV)
Matthew 25:13 – Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh (KJV)
Suppose you were told this morning that today was to be your last day on earth, how would you spend its fleeting hour? Who would you insist on seeing? Would your behavior differ radically from what it usually is or used to be?
Someone has wisely said “you should treat every day as if it is your last one, here on earth, because one of these days, you are going to be right”.
There is no getting around it. Whether our earthly life ends by accident, illness, ravages of age or our Lord’s return, one of these days will be our last. That’s why we should guard so carefully the things we do and the words we say.
We ought to be tying up the loose ends of long-neglected matters by expressing our love and gratitude to others, by seeking reconciliation with an alienated friend or by sharing the gospel with a neighbor or neighbours.
Perhaps you have been putting-off accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour until some more convenient day. But that day may never come. Since your last day on earth can be unexpected, we should heed Paul’s inspired words “Now is the accepted time, behold now is the day of salvation” 2 Cor. 6:2.
