“The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” ~ Psalm 90:10 ~
Canon J John Church of England, is my favorite preacher; he’s an evangelist, author and speaker in the United Kingdom and travels the world telling the Good News. If you go to Youtube and type in Canon J John, you’ll hear many of his stories and the above link is an interview by his son Michael John.
All his stories move me, greatly, but one in particular hit me between the eyes. I’ll tell in my words, from my view; when you read, you do the same.
In the Bible, in Psalms, we’re told we have a lifespan of three score and ten which is 70 years. To put that into more easily understandable language, assign 10 years to Monday, 10 years to Tuesday, 10 years to Wednesday, 10 years to Thursday, 10 years to Friday, 10 years to Saturday and 10 years to Sunday.
Some people have 70 years, others don’t have 70 minutes while some, like Daddy, have three score and ten with, thus far, another score (20 years). As for me, it’s Saturday night and that’s a very sobering thought.
J John says, “It’s Saturday night for me and Sunday is quickly approaching. The time is short; what am I doing for Jesus? Am I telling people about Him and how they can spend eternity in Heaven? My time is short.”
What day is it for you?
