NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR HOUR

Recently my sister passed away suddenly, and it was a complete shock to the whole family. She was someone who did so much for the Truth no matter what Ecclesia they belonged to.

The day she became ill, she was leading the residents of Beth Ezra Care Home, South London, in a meditative period and, as a music teacher, she always played hymns for everyone to sing along to.

What has struck me since that day was how her opportunity to serve others in this life, was taken away, while she was serving others. Jesus spent his whole life serving others. In fact, Mark 10:35-45 is one passage all about serving. The final verse in this section says: “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (v45).

None of us knows how long we shall live, and most people take that as an opportunity to eat drink and be merry while they can. But we (Christadelphians) believe that Jesus will return to this earth shortly to take some people to the Judgement seat, and thereafter establish God’s Kingdom here on earth; with Jesus ruling as King from Jerusalem.

This day will also come as a shock to most people. Jesus told a parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins (Matthew 25:1-13). The final verse of the parable says: “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming” (v13).

Currently, we all can serve others, but especially those of the family of God. Let us pray that God will find us serving others when our time of opportunity is over, or his Son returns, whichever is sooner.
