We Don't Have Much Time!

I read a tweet just a few days ago from @mattchandler74: “going to see a friend downtown.. He’s in home hospice and doesn’t have long. You and I don’t either”  It is so true, we don’t have much time. It burdens me why I am not sharing Christ as much as I should. I see lost people every day! I pray that God will work in us, especially in me a burden for the lost.
