Wednesday is for Prayer
Jim Croce died at 30, but not before giving the world “Time in a Bottle.”
Princess Diana of Wales died at 36, but not before championing the removal of war-mines from battle-fields.
William Shakespeare died at the age of 52, but not before writing 37 plays as sublime as any ever written.
Martin Luther King Jr. died at 39, assisinated by a man filled with hate, but not before starting a movement that changed and continues to change America for the better.
Jesus died at about the age of 37, but not before fullfilling the plan of the Father, dying for sin, leaving the world the greatest system of ethics the world has ever known and starting a world-wide movement founded on his teaching and life. And then topped it off with rising from the dead and promising to return.
What will we do with the time we have? This day, this week, this month, this year, this decade could be your last. How will you make it count for Christ? I hope you take this very personally. (Cf. Taking Psalm 90 Personally) Let’s live passionately for and like the One we call Savior.
