If I knew that I had 15 more years to live, how would I spend them? That’s what King Hezekiah was told by God when he begged to be spared from a deadly disease. (2 Kings 20:1-6)
Would my priorities change? Would I use the first five or ten for myself, promising God the final years? Or would I start now to pursue God with my all my heart, soul, and strength? It’s an interesting question.
But the truth is, I might have 30 more years or just a few days or hours. The question at hand is how to use this one day I have.
Only one life, ‘twill soon be past;
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
