The Last Days?

If you're around Pentecostal churches for any lengthy period of time, sooner or later you will probably hear someone say "we are in the Last Days".
Whether or not its true that we are almost at the end of our current history or not, we are commanded, as followers of Jesus, to live each of our days like it is our last on Earth.

Our lives are not to be wasted or spent on our own selfish pursuits as if we have all the time in the world, says Romans 13. The moment of salvation, that end point that seems to invisibly hang over the human race, is closer now than it has ever been before. Paul proclaims "... it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armour of day... put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts."

Each moment we are given is a gift from God, to be used in bringing Him glory. And while it can be easy to loose focus on our overall purpose, lets be young people who are aware that every second is bringing us closer to the day when we will stand face-to-face with our Savior, and on that day we want to be a generation who can look in His eyes and say: I have loved You with my whole life.
