Are You on Time with God?
My appeal to you from this passage is to consider where you stand in relation to the God of time. God controls history, and directs it to accomplish his saving purposes. Where do you stand in relation to those purposes? When time is up, will you be found on side of the God who controls history? Will you have used your time well in his service? It’s rarely good to be late, and when it comes to eternity, you don’t want to run out of time. So, then, are you on time with God?
