The end is near... The end of a work-filled school year. The end of a long, cold winter and a dreary, wet spring. The end of stress and strain. The end of winter colds and spring allergies. The end of cabin fever and favorite TV shows (many of which left us with major cliff hangers that will not be resolved until Fall!).
The end is near.
But is there more coming to an end? Friendships? Jobs? Ministries? Anyone moving? New School?
Our time, in each place in our lives, is limited.
What are you doing with the time you've been given...?
And what about eternity? What are your thoughts on that?
Remember, our time is short... what will come next for you?
We see people everyday. We talk with them, interact with them ...but do we really know them? In the last few years I have been shocked and saddened at the number of people who claimed to be Christians, spoke like Christians and even were leaders or taught others about Christianity... but behind closed doors... their lives were anything but Christian.
Eventually, God permits the doors that we close to be opened... and our secret lives are revealed. Sometimes others are hurt by our "secret sins".... other times they are disappointed or let down because we are not who we say we are or who they thought us to be.
Many are fakes, phonies, pretenders... some slip gradually into sin by making wrong choices. Others feel they can lead two lives... that God's grace allows it -He does forgive all we do right? So I can live how I want and God just forgives... ?
If you understand the true character of God, you will know that this is not the way He has mapped out for His children...
