Day One: What Time is it?
Romans 13:11 “And do this, knowing the time…”
A few weeks ago the phone awakened us from a deep sleep
at 3:45 a.m. Those calls can literally change your life. This one
did. It was my daughter – her water had broken and she was
headed to the hospital to deliver our first grandchild. We were
startled by her words because she was four weeks early. We
headed to the hospital as soon as we could.
As I reflect on that morning I cannot help but think about
Paul’s words to the Roman believers. Paul cautioned the
believers to understand that God’s “kairos” or opportune
time to return to Him was upon them. This was a call to
awaken from an apathetic and immoral life. It was actually
a call to repentance and a holy life in Christ. The reason –
God’s “kairos” time is nearer than when we first believed. The
completion of His salvation in our lives is upon us; it is closer
than we thought. Daybreak is approaching fast. What time is
it in your life? Do you need to awaken and return to Christ?
• Pray that the Holy Spirit would give you a greater sensitivity
to God’s “kairos” time
• Pray that your heart would be renewed in Christ as you
awaken, repent and return to Christ before it is too late
