Now!


When we compare the news report headlines all over the world, the prevalent picture shows a world that is spiralling out of control in everything that is inimical to the growth of any society. Comparing these headlines to the end-time prophecies of the Bible, we can safely conclude that God's game clock is running out: that it's way past halftime in our world! In fact, it could be that our world and our generation are hearing God's two-minute warning. When football players hear that warning, they throw caution to the wind, they make every second count and they do whatever it takes to get points on the score-board. Jesus Christ said, "We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the One who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work.” (John 9:4 – NLT).  It seems to me that Team Jesus - all of us who claim to follow Him - should be doing no less! We should be moving beyond maintenance mode to taking new grounds for the Kingdom. We should be serving and giving like there may not be a lot more tomorrows. Friend, the time has come and is NOW to forget turf and forget territory! He is coming for His BODY not bodies. It is time to wage a united battle for the lost souls in our towns! Let's refuse to let our fears keep us any longer from telling that lost friend, neighbour or relation about our Jesus Christ. It is time to abandon the suspicions and tentativeness that are bred by uncertain times like these, and trade it in for selfless and bold actions that these times demand. This is no time to settle for being on the sidelines or in the stands, or hiding out in some holy huddle! Neither is it time to be heading for the locker rooms or sitting on the ball. This game is too big to forfeit, and it's too costly to lose. Remember, the enemy hungers to win but we must be hungrier to win! God bless you.
