When God says we should be serious, or to take something seriously, then we better do. Unfortunately, many of us are more serious about the things that don't really matter than we are about the things that are quite important.
1 Peter 3:7 says, "But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.
Don't get to the point in your life where you become lukewarm and carefree. That you've always heard that the world is coming to an end, even though hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it won't. The truth is that we are in the last days; and all the prophesies are being fulfilled.
We must be watchful and prayerful. I have come to realize that a man is as strong as his prayer life: almost every spiritual defeat or weakness, falling into temptations, and so on, are because we don't pray as we should. So pray without ceasing, dear brothers and sisters, never forgetting that the day of the Lord is nigh.
