For Such A Time As This

June 11, 2013 | Tags: , ,

Who knows, perhaps you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.

-Esther 4:14

Every single day we need to be reminded who we are–children of God, living during the Church Age. Why is this important to remember? Because life is fleeting, and tomorrow is not guaranteed. We are saved by the blood of Christ for a reason–to show God’s glory and to help others be saved too. All the other things we do–work, live, play, eat, sleep, study–should be a reflection of those two things. This is a hurting and lost world that desperately needs the message of hope through Christ. It is the only message that will save and transform lives.

What is the Church Age?, you ask. It means we are the chosen people of God who are living from the time of Christ’s resurrection and ascension to the time when He comes back to get us and take us to heaven in the Rapture. The Church spans all denominations, nations, peoples and groups covering the whole world. The Church is all the born-again believers living now. We are the ones left here to reflect Jesus in and through our lives so that others might know Him too.

Every single one of us is important. We are placed all over the world, with certain people, doing certain jobs, living in certain places, for a reason. God has a plan for each of our lives. And we need to live with Christ in mind every single day. Since His ascension, the first Christians always believed Jesus’ return was imminent. Even 2,000 years later, it is still imminent. He could return at any moment to take us home with Him. It will be a glorious day that we should all long for. But until then, a sense of urgency is important. We want as many as possible to join us in the Rapture too.

Every day is a special day. Every day, you and I have a chance to show Christ to a hurting world. Let’s live like it. Let’s act like it. Let’s make sure our priorities are straight and our hearts are set on God. He could take us home at any moment. We are called to this position for such a time as this.
