It's About Time: The Time Is Now! [NOOK Book]

Overview

These essays were originally given in 1998 as a short sermon series during Advent, but are suitable for Christmas. I?m sure you will agree that they are not the usual Advent presentation of well-worn platitudes and biblical pablum. Unlike too many of my peers, I can?t stomach that kind of stuff.

Overview

These essays were originally given in 1998 as a short sermon series during Advent, but are suitable for Christmas. I’m sure you will agree that they are not the usual Advent presentation of well-worn platitudes and biblical pablum. Unlike too many of my peers, I can’t stomach that kind of stuff. To me, warm milk not only tastes bad, but it makes me sleepy.

This book is about the time in which we live. Hopefully, you will find it to be timely in your own life, as well. Time is a funny thing. We all live in it. Most of us are slaves to it, driven by appointments and schedules that must be kept. Asking people to think about time is like asking a fish to think about water — with one important difference. As far as we know, fish can’t think at all, at least not in the way that we define thinking. I will ask you to think about time, about how much time you have, how much you need, and what you do with it.

This book is about schedules and appointments — not ours, but God’s. God is also on a schedule and has appointments to make, and a timetable to keep. He has appointments with you and with me. He’ll eventually meet with everyone because He has some things to go over, some accounts to close. It’ll be an important meeting, so I’m hoping to help you think about it, even though there isn’t much you can do to prepare for it. But there is this one thing that you can do.
