MFM Daily Devotional 30 September 2022 OUTLINE
You must prepare for eternity in time. This statement can be considered in two ways, which are true. It means that in your lifetime, you must prepare for eternity for there will be no second chance to prepare, once you have crossed into eternity. There is a specific day on the calendar when all your preparation for eternity will be over. And since it could be any day, you should use your time wisely.
You must understand that whether you will experience unending joy or eternal agony depends on what happens during your lifetime. What then is more precious than time? For as a small rudder determines the direction of a great ocean liner, in the same vein, that which is done in time influences eternity. This leads us to another meaning of preparation for eternity in time. That is, prepare for it before it is too late.
The classic scriptural alert is 2 Corinthians 6:2, which says, “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” Now is the right time to prepare for where you will spend eternity. If that is an uncertain or unsettled matter with you, now is the time to settle it.
You have no guarantee of any more time to prepare for eternity neither can you put off responding to the One who made you and gave you time. Prepare for eternity by coming in faith to the Eternal Son of God, Jesus Christ. Come to Him in time and He will save you and bring you to Himself in eternity. Time is short. The more scarce something is, the more valuable it is. Gold and diamonds would be worthless if you pick them up like pebbles on the side of the road.
Time would not be so precious if we would never die. But since you are never more than a breath away from eternity, the way you use your time has eternal significance. Prepare to meet your God. God bless you as you do so, in the name of Jesus.
