Listen to the word of the Lord, O sons of Israel, For the Lord has a case against the inhabitants of the land, Because there is no faithfulness (truth) or kindness (loyalty) Or knowledge of God in the land. — Hosea 4:1
Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you toawaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. — Romans 13:11
“Do this” refers back to Romans 13:8-10 (yesterday’s devotion) to love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus loved us so much He gave His life up on a cross so we could have salvation from sin and He rose so we could have eternal life. Hallelujah!!!! And to think that each passing moment we are closer to that reality then we have ever been when we shall see Jesus in all His glory!!!
Knowing that the time is coming how can we love one another more than to share the gospel message? It is time for the Christian to wake up: “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. (Matthew 24:42) Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. (1 Corinthians 15:34)
If you say you are a “Christian” you represent Jesus in all you say and do. Are you willing to share Him so that others may know the hope found in Him? People need Jesus!
