17 His winnowing fork is in His hand to thoroughly clear His threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into His barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
Luke 3:17 NASB
One day Jesus will come back for His people. The Bible tells us that it will happen suddenly, no one knows the day.
When that day comes, everything that we tend to worry about, things that we lose sleep over, things that seem SO important today will mean absolutely nothing!
The only thing that will matter is our relationship with Jesus. Because He will separate the wheat from the chaff.
The wheat goes into the barn, heaven. The chaff gets burned up in “unquenchable fire.” You don’t want to be chaff! You don’t want the people you care about to be chaff! There is time today, but we are not promised the next minute, the next breath.
I need to make sure that I am honoring and growing in my relationship with God everyday.
I also need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading and share the message of salvation with those who the Lord is showing me to.
Lord, the time is short. One day everything will change. Until that day, help me to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Help me to share the Gospel message to those who You are calling. Give me the words to say and the grace to know when to say it.
