Not Too Young

Lord Chesterton once said, “I believe in bedside repentance, but I do not want to depend upon it.” During a serious illness a person’s mind does not function normally. Getting right with God is something one should do in the bloom of health. However, as far as the Lord is concerned, “His ear is not heavy that He cannot hear, nor His arm shortened that He cannot save.” He loves us equally, in sickness or in health; while we are living, or while we are dying. In my experience, I have not known of too many people who found Christ on their deathbed. When we come to Christ in our youth, a life is saved. When we come in old age, a soul is salvaged and life eternal is assured; but the opportunity to live a life for Christ has been lost.

Prayer for the day

Lord God, burden my heart to reach out to the young persons starting their adventure in life—and the old persons dreading the end of their journey. Let me tell them the message of Your saving love.

    “Every person has been given a great deal of work to do. A heavy burden lies on all of us from the day of our birth until the day we go back to the earth, the mother of us all. We are confused and fearful, dreading the day of our death – all of us from the king on his splendid throne wearing royal robes and a crown, to the humblest person dressed in burlap and living in poverty.”

    Amen it is true but I believe it is better to find the Lord Jesus Christ while you young because as the Word of God states:”Seek the Lord while you young before coming of the difficult years”!

    It’s always tragic to see someone deliberately postponing , accepting Christ, until they’ve had their fill of “anything goes”, the world considers fun. They think they’ll do that when they’re ready, plenty of time……Then they die suddenly, unsaved. It happens every day and every city around the world . No one knows when that moment will occur. The Bible is abundantly clear . Where there is life, there is hope .
