Because of Us
For the elect’s sake, those days be shortened. (Matthew 24:22)
For the sake of His elect, the Lord withholds many judgments and shortens others. In great tribulations,
the fire would devour all were it not that out of regard to His elect the Lord damps the flame. Thus,
while He saves His elect for the sake of Jesus, He also preserves the race for the sake of His chosen.
What an honor is thus put upon saints! How diligently they ought to use their influence with their Lord!
He will hear their prayers for sinners and bless their efforts for their salvation. He blesses believers
that they may be a blessing to those who are in unbelief. Many sinners live because of the prayers
of a mother, wife, or daughter for whom the Lord has respect.
Have we used correctly the singular power with which the Lord entrusts us? Do we pray for our country,
for other lands, and for the age? Do we, in times of war, famine, and pestilence, stand out as intercessors,
pleading that the days may be shortened? Do we lament before God the outbursts of infidelity, error,
and licentiousness? Do we beseech our Lord Jesus to shorten the reign of sin by hastening His own
glorious appearance? Let us get to our knees and never rest till Christ appeareth.
