The Hours Before Sunset

The other day I saw the most beautiful sunset ‑‑ pink and lilac and then a beautiful orange glow right at the crest of the mountains.  

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. The other day I saw the most beautiful sunset ‑‑ pink and lilac and then a beautiful orange glow right at the crest of the mountains. And then, in an instant, the sun was gone; all the color had disappeared. I once read something by Amy Carmichael that said, "We will have all of eternity to celebrate the victories, and only a few hours before sunset in which to win them." Isn't that the truth! Sunsets ‑‑ especially the lovely ones, it seems ‑‑ are here in all their glory, and gone in the wink of an eye. And that's very much like living for Jesus. The sunset of our lives is coming, and soon all that we have done for Him, all our service will be gone-in-a-flash.  It’ll be over. So, friend, redeem the time, make the most of the moment, don’t waste the opportunities. Now is your only chance; you have only a few hours before sunset to win victories for Christ.
