Wake-up Calls

Christian faith tells us that one day the Creator will return, setting a world spinning out of control back on its axis. With all the snowicanes, earthquakes, and financial and moral catastrophes besetting us these days, it would be hard to argue against the proposition that the Day is near.

I’m not in the business of timing such things, but I think it would be wise to take spiritual stock. “Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep,” it says in Rom. 13:11 (ESV). “For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.”
