False Alarms serve a purpose , they "stir" us to action , they make us grateful that it wasen't the "real thing" - U hear of an accident, the word was it may have been your family , your heart beats fast and with fear U race to the phone to find out more - any "alarm" that comes close to "home" has that affect, U hear something falling down the flight of stairs from the 2nd floor, your mind races with fear that it may have been grandma or the baby , what a relief when U do find that it was the laundry basket ! Supposing it was real -- supposing this is not a "FALSE ALARM "
WHAT IF --- what if we knew the Lord was coming in 3 months - would our walk be any different ? our witness be more prayerful ? would we have a "get-together" with our friends to share with them our HOPE ? would the things of this earth grow strangely dim ? would our prayer life for those "without" take on a new meaning ? would our sharing of this world's wealth take on a new meaning ? would we be smiling more ? complaining less ? WELL OF COURSE , IF WE KNEW . Then all of us would be making some adjustments , including me or I should say , especially me !
THE LORD TELLS US TO LIVE with the thought of HIS COMING ANY DAY ------WHAT A HOPE -- LOOK UP for your REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH ----
