Daily Bible Blessing-17
The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer. (1 Peter 4:7)
The Apostle Peter, here, warns every reader, of the end times. Though these words had been penned a long time ago, here and now, we must remind ourselves of the proximity of the event. With the chaos that nations are engulfed with, the end is truly near. As we read the Word, we must also look around us and know that what's written in the Word of God, must be fulfilled. Peter exhorts us to be of sound judgement and to be sober in spirit, so that we can pray effectively and be ready for the Lord's coming. Let us take to heart his exhortation then and be ready at all times, so that we may not be caught unawares.
