DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
The Time Is At Hand
The saying is true that time waits for no man. The end of time is drawing close fast and it is for this reason that the Bible is closing with this reminder that Christ is coming soon. In fact, now sooner than ever before, and will reward everybody according to his or her deeds. Having repeatedly warned on the need for repentance, the Bible is now urging everybody to make a choice of fate in eternity. Knowing that there is no change of destiny after death it states ironically that the sinner should continue well in his sins, the filthy should continue well in his filth, while in clear terms, the righteous should continue to be righteous. The unchangeable fact is that Christ is coming soon to reward everybody based on whatever choice he or she makes.
Point of Emphasis: Christ will reward every man according to his or her work.
Prayer Point: Give me the grace Lord, to live a righteous life that I may receive the reward of righteousness.
