Tuesday, December 25: Job 25-27, Revelation 18:9-24 ~ Danae

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Job 25-27, Revelation 18:9-24

“In one hour your doom has come!”

“In one such hour great wealth has been brought to ruin!”

“In one such hour she has been brought to ruin!”

We read these statements in Revelation 18 in reference to the fall of Babylon.  Babylon, however, is not just a city but represents the sinful nature in this world.

What a reminder for us & what we place our time & value into.

We live in a culture of self gratification, if it’s something we want we will seek to justify ourselves rather than deny ourselves. Our focus is so often our social standing (often dictated by our worldly possessions).  We put more time & effort into careers & making a large enough income that we have nothing left to invest in anything of true value.

In an hour, it will come to ruin for us too!  We won’t have any warning. Our plans to “do it later” for God won’t happen. We will put all of our efforts into things that will come to ruin & we’ll have nothing left.

Lord, help us to live our lives for you. That the time we invest will be spent into things that will not come to ruin but will bring everlasting glory to you.
