Ephesians 5:16 "Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."
No one who has been saved by the grace of God and has any knowledge of the Word of God would argue that we are indeed in the last days.
That has a double effect on us. First of all, we look forward to the coming of our Savior. What a joy to know there is going to be no more death...sin...sickness or separation. We say "Come quickly Lord Jesus".
On the other hand we must also realize and be grieved in our heart that many that we know and love are still lost without God. If we are to reach them for Christ we must hurry!! We cannot just sit by and watch as the days go on and eternity gets closer. The call is to action!!
Have you done all you can do to try to win your loved ones? I have said all I can say to my family to be saved. They don't want to hear it anymore. They have told me if I mention church or God to them that they will never speak to me again. They did it once before for over nine years and I know they will do it again. So all I can do is live the godly Christian life and show them in my converstaion as best I can with the Lord's help to show them I have something that they might desire to have for themselves. But loved ones don't just include our families. That includes our friends and neighbors. We have an obligation and privilege to show them the love of Christ through word and in deed. Jesus' return is near and we need to be busy for the Lord trying to win those we love. Afterall...they are the only "things" in this world we can take with us when we leave here.
