Some people like to disagree with the Bible. It’s fashionable today in many circles to ridicule Biblical truth that is out the mainstream of Western thought. Subjects like evolution vs. creation, Biblical child training vs. “the experts” of our day, and the claims of Christ to be the only way to heaven all give opportunity to those who want to challenge the Bible. They also give us opportunity to share much needed truth in a world far from God.
There is one Biblical truth however than almost no one disputes. It is the brevity of life. All through Scripture we are warned that time is quickly passing. The older we get the more conscious we become of this truth and the more disturbing it becomes to those who are uncertain what will happen to them at the end of this life.
Everyone agrees that life is short. Let’s watch for opportunities to use this agreement as a starting point in presenting the Gospel, which is the best way to redeem the time.
