PREPARED FOR THE END

It was, and is, a time of preparation. Paul gives the clarion call—
 
            “And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has
             come for you to wake from your slumber, because our
             salvation is nearer now than when you first believed. The
             night is nearly over; the day is almost here.” (Romans 13:
             11-12a)
 
Now was/is the time for action—
 
            “So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the
             armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime,
             not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality
             and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather,
             clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not
             think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.”
             (vss.12b-14)
 
Yes, we are in the end times. Now is the time to live for Christ!
 
PONDER POINT: Now is the time to live in holiness and purity!
