Time is short… do you know that?
A French children’s song starts with the words put in the title. Jehoahaz did not know that his time was going to be short, and we do not know how long we have. But as this children’s song says, we know that time is short and that Jesus is coming back soon!
We mentioned, concerning the reign of Amon, that tomorrow does not belong to us. Here we see that our days are short. “So teach us to number our days, that we may acquire a wise heart” (Psalms 90:12). Jehoahaz reigned for three months, and the rest of his life was nothing but captivity.
Jehoahaz made a bad use of the short time he had. May we make good use of the time that we have now, being “filled with the full knowledge of his will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so as to walk worthily of the Lord unto all well-pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work, and growing by the true knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:9-10).
What are we going to do with the time we have?
This new video presents three lessons learned from the events that occurred during Jehoahaz’s reign.
