The Time is Now
by Stan Wells
Zechariah 8:1-17 “Even though it seems impossible to the remnant of this people in these days, should it also seem impossible to me, says the Lord of hosts?” v. 6
Today is the time to give our life over to the Lord. The more we wait to make up our mind, it might be too late. We don’t want to be trying to wonder where we are going to spend eternal life. Only you know where you might go if you give your life to the Lord. Then you will spend your life in the Holy city.
That is what the Lord of hosts is talking about – where there is no impossible – what the Lord will do for His people who walk in faith, not by sight. We are the people of Judah and Israel. We were cursed by our sin and sorrow but, through the mercy of the Lord who we call upon and asked forgiveness, He gave it to us. All so we could be in the Holy city with the Lord of hosts. If you miss this time, it will be too late. That is why the time is now.
God, this is the day you have made.
Come now Lord Jesus, so I may rejoice and be glad in it.
Come now Lord Jesus, so I may surrender to you my agenda and to-do list.
Come now Lord Jesus, so I may receive today your love from the ones you have blessed to give it to me.
Come now Lord Jesus, so I may share today your love with the ones you have blessed me to give it to.
Come now Lord Jesus, so I, all people, and all creation may be awake and ready for the coming of your Son, Jesus Christ, and the glorious end of days.
