What Time Is It?

We really live by the clock these days. Dozens of times a day we are asking:"What time is it? What time must we go? What time will they get here? Have I time to finish?—time to start?—time?"
If you usually wear a watch, leave it off for one day and count the number of times you glance at your empty wrist to check the time.
Turn a wall or table clock to the wall, and again see how often you look at it.
The pressure of time is always with us, "I haven't time today—I wish I had more time—how fast time flies!"
To the best of their ability and more or less accurately our timepieces report the present time to us. But beyond that, every tick of grandfather's big clock, every flicker of the newest digital watch, every clock in this world is silently warning: "It is time to seek the Lord." Hos. 10:1212Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. (Hosea 10:12).
We know that time flies. We have no time to lose before we seek the Lord. We have no time to lose before we make sure of our salvation.
When this day of salvation ends it will be forever too late to seek the Lord-too late to find salvation.
