For thou shalt be His witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard. Acts 22:15
What’s more important in your life today? Seeing the next episode of your favorite TV series? Or asking an unsaved neighbor over for a chance to love them to Jesus? Playing a round of golf, or visiting your unsaved father? Going shopping with friends, or taking time to read the Bible to a lost person in a nursing home? Someone wisely observed, “We manage to make time for what’s really important to us.”
Friend, time is running out. Jesus said, “I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).
We will not be witnessing in heaven. That’s our earthly duty and privilege now. None of us knows how many hours we have left. We must seize the golden opportunities God gives us daily to witness.
A line from “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” is our challenge: “Oh, be swift, my soul to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet! Our God is marching on.”
