Is time running out?

Have you ever thought that maybe time is running out?

What is your understanding of the length of your life? What is your expectation of the time and place you will die. Can you pinpoint that moment to the year, month, week, day, hour, second, or moment? Do you have an understanding of when or where that will take place? No soul on earth can predict how much time they have, aside from a deliberate suicide attempt, and even that can fail!

Bartimaeus was a blind man who knew Christ Jesus was the Messiah, and he called out in a way that let everyone know it. Bartimaeus knew, as Christ Jesus came near him, his time had come. What did he do? Bartimaeus called out so loud that everyone around him could hear. Those nearest Bartimaeus sternly told him to be quiet. They were willfully standing between Bartimaeus and Christ Jesus. That is one place I never want to stand! Christ Jesus heard Bartimaeus and recognized his faith and granted his request by giving Bartimaeus sight. Christ Jesus said, “Go, your faith has made you well.” Christ Jesus could have said, “I, the great Messiah, has healed you!” But Christ Jesus recognized the faith Bartimaeus had in who Christ Jesus was, and that is what healed his blindness.

Time is going by at what feels like lightning speed. We may believe we have time, more time, plenty of time, or all the time in the world. Well, if that’s true, what are we waiting for? Our time on earth could end today. No, this morning could be our last morning on earth. With that real possibility, what do we intend to do? Lazily, complacently, defeatingly wait for death to come, or will we rise up, call out to Christ Jesus who hears us, heals us, and restores us? Do we follow Him and bring as many as we we can influence with us?

Whether we realize it or not, time is running out. This is not to create anxiety. It is meant to instill a sense of urgency, purposefulness, and intention to seek Christ Jesus in every moment, opportunity, decision, and experience. Take what little time we have left on earth to recognize Him, learn more of Him, praise Him, pray for others on behalf of Him, and tell others about Him. Cry out to Him and be confident in your convictions of who He is. Your faith in Him will make you well!
