Two Dates on the Calendar

Martin Luther said, "I only have two dates on my calendar . . . today and Judgment Day." How wise it is to live for those two days. While Judgment is probably the last thing on the mind of the world, it should be the first thing on the mind of the Christian because such a thought should help him walk in the fear of the Lord. It will help him keep his heart free from sin. But more than that, it will horrify him when he sees this world soak up sin as though there were no tomorrow. This world's love for iniquity justifies God's wrath. Think of their fate: "... but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek." ( Romans 2:8 & 9) There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
