Jesus is changing me. How about you?

Today!

Americans spend a great amount of effort and time constructing Christmas for themselves.  Is this admirable?  Without service to the will of God in Christ Jesus, I can say, NO!  Yet consider the following:

When all is said and all is done our work for Him is not complete.  We strive for things that will provide for the needs of today and we often consider providing the needs of a tomorrow.  Perhaps your tomorrow of providing is next week.  Perhaps you even provide for your retirement.  You might have even gone so far as to have your headstone carved and located and bought the plot of ground your body will rot in.  But what about that “Day”? 

I’m speaking of the day when you will give full account of yourself.  Absolutely everything you’ve done, though, and spoken will be demanded from you.  How much thought have you given to that place?  We have been warned and I am sent to warn.   Even your own conscience stands to warn you of that coming day.  What have you done to give a good report of yourself?

There is one aspect to give all importance in this preparation for that Day.  God sent His Son to die for the sins of those who would accept His sacrifice on their behalf.  What are you doing with that gift?  All men will stand guilty before the Great God of Glory and Life.  All men will stand bare naked and helpless before Him, except those who have done the will of God in believing Jesus. 

Find shelter in Him now.  For today is all you are given to do so.  I tell you a truth.  As the Lord Himself said, “It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.”

By His Grace.
