The cutting (9 Dec 2020)

I say to God, “Lord, I am more relaxed now because I realized I have more time than I thought.”
His voice roars like thunder. “Look, I am standing ready with the ax, ready at the root of the tree. And soon, I will cut it down! So work while you can, because soon night will fall, when no one will be able to work.”

Scripture reference

“And don't think you can escape punishment by saying that Abraham is your ancestor. I tell you that God can take these rocks and make descendants for Abraham! The ax is ready to cut down the trees at the roots; every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown in the fire. “
(Mat 3:9-10)

Interpretation

We may feel like we will always have another day, another chance to do what God asks of us. But we do not know when will be our last day, we do not know the date of Christ’s return. So let’s make use of every opportunity, and submit to God’s work within us.

Prayer:
Father God, please give us the wisdom to realize the brevity of life, and deliver us from spiritual bareness. Let streams flow in the desert, and make our lives fruitful. Give us hearts of flesh, and make us willing to obey you. In Jesus’ name, Amen
