Preparing the Church for the future

The Time is Short

Posted by undergroundchurch on October 5, 2009

Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. – Isaiah 55:6

The Biblegateway scripture of the day rings a resounding alarm – there will be a day that God will be too far away.  That day approaches quickly, are you in with Him yet?

God doesn’t just throw around threats; His desire is to show you His bountiful goodness, so the Isaiah 55 starts off with –

Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.

Give ear and come to me;
hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David.

What God has is free, but it has to be received.  He did all the work, but you still need to acknowledge your need for Him and your inability to make it to Him on your own.  Jesus is the only way to God; He is the truth and He is the only hope of eternal life you have.  This is immutable, and the offer only lasts for a short time before it is too late.

Come to the fountain today and drink freely of eternal life. Don’t let it slip away.

    Thanks for this post, Jeff. It’s so powerful to live as though we are saved for something, in the here and now, and keep our hope of the perfect Kingdom to come—rather than reside in the static perspective that we are only saved from something.

    What a comforter our GOD is.

    I would be delighted if you would weigh in at my blog, from time to time when you get the chance. I love your insights.
