Don't Look Now, But We're Still Here!

"As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me.  Night is coming, when no one can work." -- John 9:4

As we knew would be the case, today came and went despite Harold Camping's prediction that Judgment Day would occur on May 21, 2011.  How could he possibly be privy to God's timing of the Rapture when Jesus himself clearly tells us "no one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father" (Matthew 24:36)?  Puh-leeze!

My daughter didn't want the Rapture to occur today.  She has a friend who is still lost and has not yet received Jesus as her Savior.  Many of us are in the same boat, praying for the salvation of those we love.  There's a lot of work to be done before Christ returns!

As much as I would love to be in heaven at this moment, I know that God still has work for me to do on this earth.  So do you.  What are we waiting for?  One of these days -- only God knows when -- Jesus is coming back.  Even though we might be ready, will the lost ones be?  It is up to us to "do the work" of showing and telling the world about Jesus while there is still time.  Let us not waste another day, for tomorrow could well be our last.
