We Must Serve the Lord Faithfully in this Peaceful Time

Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21).

Those who truly honor and love God in fear offer their most valuable treasure to Him. This is because this is the least that they can do for God. 

Jesus said, For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always.” Indeed, we don’t always have the opportunity to serve the Lord. Do you think that you will always have another opportunity to serve the Lord? No, this is not the case. Moreover, we are living in such an uncertain age that we do not know for how many more years we will be able to serve the Lord. It is not true that we have unlimited hours to serve the Lord.


What is all too clear is that we can hear the Lord approaching us nearer and nearer. Step for step, we can hear His approaching footsteps. As we hear this sound so clearly, we cannot ignore it. That’s why we must serve the Lord now when we still can. If we put it off and miss this present opportunity, we will regret it forever. What can we ever do when the hour of tribulation is upon us? Would we be able to publish our gospel books even if we had all the money? Would we be able to go abroad and preach the gospel? No, we won’t be able to do anything. We will have no other choice but to be confined in our neighborhoods and sit around in our homes, doing nothing but eating and drinking. So if we ever plan to offer our material possessions to the Lord, we must do so now. If we ever want to serve the Lord, we must serve Him now!
