Don't wait

Don't wait
"There are all kinds of messages that God gives us.
  • There are uplifting messages
  • There's the thus sayeth the Lord messages
  • There's teaching messages
  • And there's timely messages

This is one of those timely messages

God calls you and God is satisfied with only one word from you, Yes.

This week we are looking at two words that God has for you and others concerning the answer of Yes to God, Don't wait.

If you are serious about your relationship with God you need to get on with it.

Luke 14:16-24, "Then said He unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: V17 And sent His servant at supper time to say to them that were bideen, Come; for all things are now ready. V18 And they with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto Him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. V19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. V20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. V21 So that servant came, and shewed his Lord these things. Then the Master of the house being angry said to His servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. V22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet ther is room. 23 And the Lord said unto His servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. V24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper."

It has been my experience that God has been very gracious and merciful, generous and patient with each of us, but the message here is clear. You know from scripture and experience that God offers the gift of salvation to everyone that has breath. Therefore, theoretically, its never too late to receive Christ, (and the many benefits that accompany that decision) at least until you die."
