Or is that even important to you? Did you know that it is a lack of love and concern for others to be late for an appointment that you have agreed upon? If you are late you might as well say that “I am more important than you are and what I am doing is more important than what you are doing. It is also a lack of consideration for people that have appointments after you. You could throw the whole days schedule off for many people, and have to wait long periods of time or re-schedule after you’ve driven a long way. The Bible says; “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Philippians 2:3-5). “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.” (Galatians 6:3).
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus….” If you are a saved born again Christian you need to try to be some sort of example or witness for the Lord by being on time and being concerned about other peoples time.
Thank God, Jesus is not going to be late plucking you out of this world for The Rapture. Some of you would be late for The Marriage Supper of The Lamb if it were not for the Lord picking you up himself. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). This Gods alarm clock ! So be your best to be on time for Jesus and keep your word, as God keeps his word to you, unless of course you have a good excuse, such as your car breaks down, or something else that is beyond your control. But if it happens to much people won’t trust you and it will hurt your witness. You want people to trust you when you witness to them, about Jesus the faithful witness and the answer to all their problems. In many counties it is considered a real shame to be late, and they even teach their children how serious it is not to be late. Maybe you should ask the Lord to help you be on time and start getting ready earlier. Show some love and consideration and have some class, and be on time or even a little earlier than your suppose to be.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen
