Sundar Singh: the time for service

Monday, October 17, 2022
    Feast of Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch, Martyr, c.107
My days are like the evening shadow;
    I wither away like grass.
But you, O LORD, sit enthroned forever;
    your renown endures through all generations.
    —Psalm 102:11-12 (NIV)
    The present life is the only opportunity that will be given me for helping others in this world. That is a privilege which even Angels are not allowed. We shall have Heaven for ever, but we have only a short time for service here, and therefore must not waste the one opportunity.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), The Message of Sadhu Sundar Singh, B. H. Streeter & A. J. Appasamy, New York: The Macmillan Company, 1922, p. 38 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 102:11-12; 39:4-5; Isa. 40:7-8; Matt. 24:35; Mark 13:31; 1 Pet. 1:23-25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I serve You the remainder of my days on earth.
