Daily devotional: Judgment is coming

Scripture
Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water."
Revelation 14:6-7 NIV

Observation
Today is the day for proclaiming the gospel to everyone on earth, for soon the hour of judgment will come, when all will be judged and only those who have chosen to follow God through Jesus Christ will be saved from God's wrath.

Application
Proclaim the gospel message with gentleness and respect. Don't keep putting it off when people's eternal standing is at stake.

Prayer
Lord, I love you and worship You. You alone are worthy of all praise and power and glory and honor. Thank you for saving me and giving Your message of salvation. Help me to obediently proclaim Your message and not shy away from telling people about Your saving grace, the real and satisfying life You offer, as well as the judgment that awaits for those who choose to go their own way. Holy Spirit, prompt me when You have prepared opportunities and then speak through me so that people will hear what You have for them. Prepare their hearts so that they will understand and receive the message. And help me to not just stop there but help people become maturing disciples of Jesus Christ.
