Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with Thee, Thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;
O that Thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that Thou wouldest keep me secret, until Thy wrath be past, that Thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. (Job 14:1-2, 5, 13-14)
GOD knows the heart of men, often better than we know ourselves or our pride will allow us to admit, and He knows the number of our days, which are finite and short, on this earth. For those who are secure in Him by faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, we are saved from sin through repentance, and delivered from this world and the wrath of GOD. That is not a license to continue in sin, but liberty in Christ to live for Him and rejoice in His redemption of us, justified, being sanctified, and one day when He returns, glorified and forever in His presence. That is the message of hope we have not only for our future with Christ, but the abundant and eternal life we already possess now in and through Jesus Christ who gave Himself for us that we might be made the righteousness of GOD in Him.
Until that day when He returns for His own, GOD is accomplishing His work and will through His Church. He calls His people to ministry, to serve those around us who are hurting and in need with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that others might see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our Lord commands His disciples to love one another as He loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of GOD that we might grow thereby and be conformed to the image of His dear Son. GOD has commissioned His saints to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit and teach all nations as we go, and proclaiming the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith, that those who believe in Him might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
