Not Too Young

By   •   December 15   •   Topics: ,

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.

Billy Graham preaches youth can turn the world upside down for Christ.

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.

    What’s important is today and now accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life. We do not know when we have to leave our bodies and be asleep. As you know that we are all spirit not body. But accepting Jesus when young is great as there are so many things we can do for Jesus when young which we cannot do later in life. So pray for all souls young or old. The soul has to be saved. The Bible says that there is rejoicing in heaven when ONE human is saved. It does not say young or old. But young is great. I really love seeing young people in Church though I also feel happy seeing the older ones also in Church. Glory to God. Amen
