Silence the Alarm!

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done.” Revelation 22:12

The lights were flashing, and the horn was honking but nobody was around. Last Thursday morning, I was doing my prayer walk in a different city and different neighborhood. I spent a considerable amount of my time, praying for a loved one who recently received bad news from the doctor. I was walking past a shopping center when a car alarm started going. The alarm startled me and then a thought went through my head, “God gives people alarms to wake them up”. We often don’t view bad news from the doctor being an alarm. But when you think about it, it fits.

An alarm wakes you up… An alarm brings us to reality… An alarm tells us it is time to act.

Isn’t that what happens when we hear bad news from the doctor?

Bad news wakes us up…Bad News brings us to reality…Bad News tells us it is time to act.

Thankfully, there is ALWAYS GOOD NEWS…Jesus Christ died to save sinners!

God, in His graciousness and mercy, gives people alarms so that they will wake up, face reality, and realize it is time to act.

Let’s give people the GOOD NEWS to silence their alarms

…Tell them about the Lord and Savior, Jesus!

And, remember, we need to always share the truth with gentleness and love!

Have a Great Day
