"..., looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,..." [KJV]

What is this passage of Scripture saying to us today ?...

The NKJV & NASB say..."looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God"

The NIV says..."look forward to the day of God and speed its coming "

The NLT says..."looking forward the the Day of God and hurrying it along "

The GNB says..."do your best to make it come soon".

 

There are 4 kinds of people in Christendom today, to whom this passage of Scripture may well be addressed !...

[But only ONE KIND gets the PRIZE.........!!!]

[1] The Waster....[2] The Taster....[3] The Paster...[4] The Haster...

We may all have certain resources such as....TIME / SPACE / KNOWLEDGE / GIFTS /  EFFORT / MONEY / PROPERTY / TRANSPORT / EXPERTISE / MANPOWER / CONTACTS / INFLUENCE / FAVOUR / AUTHORITY / PRACTICALITY /  UTILITIES  / COMMUNICATIONS / GOODS & SERVICES / ETC.,ETC.

[1] The Waster will abuse EVERY ONE of these things we have and 'leave us for dead'...!!!

( Let us remember that JESUS warned us NOT to 'cast our pearls before swine' ! )

[2] The Taster will 'TRY' everything  that anyone has... but never bring forth fruit... through perseverance & dilligence !!!

[3] The Paster will file everything away for the 'PERFECT MOMENT',...which NEVER seems to arrive !!! 

[4] The Haster Is the One who has made THE Quality Decision to do ALL in their power with ALL that they have and ALL that they are... to propagate The Gospel and see ...'The Kingdom of GOD Come. ' 

Let us prayerfully consider how we can best serve The Lord... in the way of No.4 ...!!!

MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU.
