In view of the much anticipated coming age, we should endeavour to make the best use of our time by serving God with dedication as well as saving as many souls as we possibly can regardless of our current circumstances. 1) In a little while: a) we shall close this chapter. b) we shall be reunited with our Lord Jesus Christ. c) we shall be rewarded. 2) In the meantime: a) Let us practice prayer. Prayer is both a means and an end because it is that confidence in and submission to God (John 2:1-3). b) Let us practice love. Love is the royal law without which all our activities become resounding gongs and clanging cymbals. 3) In this way: Our God will be praised in all things through Jesus Christ. Our God gets the glory when we’re prayerful and loving people.
