Do You Know the Time?

 

While waiting for my flight in the airport one day, I was reading from a book and I noticed a gentleman sat down a couple of seats from me and within a few minutes he leaned over toward me and asked, “Pardon me sir, do you know the time?” Without giving it a second thought, I simply looked at my watch and said, “It is nearly time!”

Now, I know that wasn’t what the man wanted to know and I quickly grinned and gave him the correct time. He looked at me somewhat puzzled. I’m sure that the man had no idea what I was referring to. I was referring to the time our flight would begin to board.

But what if I had told the man that yes, it was nearing the time God would call us home. Now I would certainly be concerned if he had asked the question and given me the same answer. In this day and time, you never know what could happen. The man could have been a terrorist and was planning to bring destruction to the plane and everyone on board.

My point is very distinct. The psalmist says in Psalm 31:15, “My times are in Thy hand…” Oh how true that is! On the negative side, this certainly would be a disastrous situation if it was a terrorist. My time could nearly be up. On the positive side, the man could be looking for an opportunity to start a conversation leading up to sharing the gospel with me.

Honestly, time is critical. Acts 1:7 says, “. . .it is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority.” We never know when that time will happen. What we should know is whether we are prepared for that time when it comes. Are you ready to go, if God is calling you home? If you’re not ready, you can always ask me how you can be.
