A Sense of Urgency

Scrolling through Facebook I am overwhelmed with all the videos people publish. It has truly turned into a mini YouTube. I am not on Facebook much anymore because of that reason but the other day I came across a video that literally made my arm hair stand on end. Oh. It was so good. It is short, so I’ll post it here for ya…
Wow. What a powerful word.
This morning, which is several days later from when I saw this message, I read these scriptures from 2 Timothy 4.
“You’re going to find that there will be times when people will have no stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk food—catchy opinions that tickle their fancy. They’ll turn their backs on truth and chase mirages. But you—keep your eye on what you’re doing; accept the hard times along with the good; keep the Message alive; do a thorough job as God’s servant.”

How can we ignore these warnings from the Lord?  How can we stop being consumed with the gnats of life; people pulling out in front of you in traffic, children who bicker, people at work who annoy us, not having the newest, fastest, shiniest thing and instead focus on how things are affecting eternity?

I am so guilty at allowing the monster of comparison to eat away at me which does nothing but breed distraction away from what God wants to be my focus: Him.  Eternity.  Me fulfilling the Great Commission.

I urge you.
I urge myself.
God is wanting us to share Him.
And He is wanting us to stamp this as “Urgent.”
