Lights. Camera. Action!
In earlier days of film making, these words were a call from the director to begin a scene. It was imperative to keep the costs of footage low, so the director wanted every person in place and paying strict attention before allowing the camera to roll. “Action” was shouted with a sense of urgency, again so as not to waste precious footage. Take a moment to read Matthew 28:18-20.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matthew 28:18-20
Do you catch the sense of urgency in Jesus’ words? It is as though He was seated in the director’s chair, “Lights, camera, action…Go!” There is much we do not know about time, including how much of it any given person has remaining. So, let’s take action today.
