The last day began after Jesus’ resurrection and it will continue until His second coming. This means we are living in the last days. So we should make the most of the time that God has given to us. Eph. 5:15-16 says, “Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil”.

 

Apostle Paul listed at least 18 different characteristic, which are the outgrowth of loving ourselves other than God. God commanded us to love Him supremely and our neighbours as ourselves (Matt 22:34-40). If we love ourselves supremely, we will not love God. The descriptive list of behaviour in the last days describes our society.

 

“People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness, but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them” 2 Tim. 3:2-5 NIV

 

Don’t give in to society’s pressures. Don’t settle for comfort without commitment. Stand up against evil by living as God would have His people live.

 

In the last days, false teachers will creep in and deceive and must expose false teaching. New believers need to grow in their knowledge of the Word, because ignorance can lead you astray. God wants us to be spiritually contagious, influencing and impacting our world for Him.
