  TOPIC: THE NEED FOR URGENCY Read Ecclesiastes 3:1-81 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: 2 A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; 3 A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; 7 A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; 8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.   MEMORISE:Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going (Ecclesiastes 9:10) EXPOSITIONThe importance of a thing determines how urgent it is to any man. Bible commands that we should be fast in doing whatever our hands find doing. Man has just few years here on earth; therefore, he can't afford wasting those years. A little time is allotted to every man under the sun. As you have just a little time, so also the man who you are sent to. No man knows what becomes of him in the next minute. Do that which you are commissioned to do, now. You can't afford to postpone it (Eccl. 9:10).Another reason for the urgency of what you are called to do is that, the devil is working assiduously to win the battle but you cant afford to lose it either (1 Pet. 5:8). In the jungle, lions attack sick, lonely and young animals. Go in your might and do what has been committed to your hands lest the devil devours them.Time is of essence. You don't have it to yourself. Therefore, work during the day, night comes when no one will be able to work. Use the energy in you now before you lose it to time. The old men were once young.Death is rampant and people die daily in numbers. Diseases, wars, improved knowledge, etc cause death. About a million people died of one single virus around the world in few months. How many others died of other diseases within same period? Do you know any of the dead? Are they all saved? What has been your contribution to their salvation? Now is your day of salvation and service.Another major reason for the need of urgency is that, the end of age is here with us. The end time is nearer than ever before. Use all you have now, because they may be useless anytime soon: time is of importance (Eccl. 3:1ff). PRAYER POINTS1. Lord, help me to make judicious use of my time and stay here on earth.2. I receive the strength to do that which I have been created, appointed and commissioned to do without wasting further time.3. Lord, help our leaders; teach them what to do to rescue our nation from every disaster that is befalling her. EXTRA READING FOR TODAY:1 Chr. 12:14 - 15:5; John 19:16 - 19:37 Author: CAC WORLDWIDERemain blessed!
