Today Reminder - 06 January 2012

My prayer for you for today is that you will put on the shining armour of right living as we move closer to our salvation. In the Name of Jesus.

Romans 13:11-12
This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armour of right living.

Time is of the essence. I love NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigation Services), it is always a rush to find the killer and to save the innocent. In each episode they are always fighting against time as the team rushes to investigate people, looking for clues and interrogating people until it all eventually fits together like puzzle. My favourite character is Special Agent Gibbs that leads the NCIS team in their investigations. I think it is his qualities as a character that amazes me most, he cannot be corrupted, and he is steady as a rock and always focussed on the job no matter what happens or happened in his personal life. He made mistakes in his past that brings a more human side out to an almost super hero and the best part obviously is, he always gets his guy. Waking up this morning listening to the thunder outside and waiting for the rain to start, I can’t help to think that the puzzles are falling into place as we are watching a dying world. Are you ready for the end? Time is running out slowly but surely, and we don’t have much left. If you knew tomorrow is the end of time, the end of the world and the coming of the king, would you leave your loved ones to continue living a life without God, would you stand around and keep quiet? Why do we do it then, when we know it is all coming to an end?

Life is but a mere moment. All the evidence is on the table and it all points to the return of the Lord. If there is anything that holds you back from your past, shed it now and remove this from your life. Put on the armour of right living and live today as if there is no tomorrow. Honour God for each moment and thank Him for another chance to share His gift with those around us. Do not wait and do not be scared for God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him (Philippians 2:13). Let’s continue to be the difference makers and city changers as we fight to save God’s people. My prayers are with you friend of Jesus.

Today is going to be a beautiful day.

Have a great day!
