Every Moment, Every Day
Time is short. 1 Corinthians 7:29
Two Washington, D.C., residents quit their jobs to bicycle around the world. Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan described their adventures on their blog, “Simply Cycling,” explaining, “Because life is short and the world is big…we want to make the most out of our youth and good health before they’re gone.” Tragically they were killed by ISIS terrorists while bicycling in Tajikistan. They were 29.
We know time is short, but we don’t always know how short it is. The writer of Psalm 89:47 says, “Remember how short my time is.” For those who know Jesus as Savior, our lifespans are as long as eternity; Jesus has given us eternal life. But we have a brief allocation of time on earth, and we don’t have a certain promise of even another day.
Let’s make the most of the moments God gives us. Don’t fritter your time away with endless diversions and distractions. Live purposefully, making the most of the opportunities because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:16). There’s a new year coming soon. Let’s take advantage of every moment and every day for Christ and His Kingdom.
Share His love by sharing of your faith, and show the world that Jesus Christ is real to you, every moment and every day.
William J. Reynolds, in the hymn “Share His Love”
