We have all heard the stories of the 9/11 survivors who were not in the Towers that fateful morning because they were a minute late for the train or had to run back in for “just a minute” to grab something they forgot. Then there are the other stories of people who just missed being in intersection when another driver ran a red light or a mom who made it to the hospital just in time to give birth. These stories make great chain emails but what of your own experiences? When has a minute changed your life? Was it the minute you went from wife to mom? Fiancé to husband? Student to graduate? These are the links in our own personal history chain. They are the moments that make us who we are.
And what of the moment you went from sinner to saved? For most of us who have experienced this, it is the minute that links us to eternity. It is the minute that ties us to another who lived 2000 years ago. It is the moment that we became a part of something bigger than our own lives, a link in an eternal chain. The question now is how strong of a link are you? Are you using your minutes to affect eternity or are you allowing them to go by unnoticed? Our challenge today is to not let another minute go by without creating a link to history, without uniting today with eternity.
