“Repent: Early And Often” By Kirk Hunt
Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
Luke 13:4–5 NKJV
We live in a fallen world where thorns and scorpions grow. We live in a fallen society where men and women are willing to publicly repudiate God’s judgment. All kinds of pure evil and pure accidents are possible. When did you last repent?
Sometimes a tragedy is just a tragedy. As Jesus Himself comments: Were 18 folk killed by a falling building the only sinners in Jerusalem? He did not think so.
Approximately 7,855 people die in the United States, every day. That includes Sundays. Are they the only sinners in America? I do not think so. Do you?
God’s people should live ready to meet God. At any time, a random traffic accident or a murderous gun-wielder could send you into eternity. Are you ready for your final judgment and reckoning?
Could every bad incident in a church house be part of a sinister conspiracy against God’s Church? Unlikely. Could every bad incident in a church house be a reminder to live ready to meet God? Absolutely.
Do not be distracted or fearful. No matter what happens, nor when it happens, or how it happens, God is still in control. What always remains in your control is if you are ready to meet Him, face-to-Shekinah. You are ready, right?
Think: Am I really ready to meet God in judgment at every moment?
Pray: “Lord, help me to live ready for Your judgment at any time.”
