Life’s too short

Life’s too short
To waste a single day
The kingdom’s life
Is closer everyday.
  In the midst of time,
The kingdom’s mine
Just by calling on His name each day.
The sweetest taste
Of life is deep within.
Its flowing out
Is primed by calling Him.
  In the midst of time,
The kingdom’s mine
Just by calling on His name each day.
Time is quickly
Running out each day.
The Lord will come
And swiftly end this age.
  At the end of time,
The goal we’ll see
The millennium is our entry.
  At the end of time,
The goal we’ll see
The New Jerusalem we’ll be.

This song was first released in Irvine in 1987 where we spent 2 weeks living at the meeting hall. Who else remembers this? I believe a brother named Duane wrote this song.

Lord, I give You my little tiny life, that I'll be fully constituted with the truth. Saints, our life really too short! We now need to consecrate, offer up ourselves to Him as living sacrifice to Him, to serve Him to the end of our lives. We must be ready for His move and for the building up of His Body, that the golden lampstands on earth may shine brightly everywhere. I love You, Lord!

"Saints our life is so short. That is why "we need to live as if the Lord will come today but plan as if the Lord will not come in a hundred years."

This is a serious matter. Let him who is righteous do righteous still. If we want to serve the Lord, let's serve Him. "No one who puts His hand on the plow and looks behind is fit for the kingdom of's a warning to us all. AMEN.
