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.

    There is no better time to accept Christ than the present. Don’t put it off another day, perhaps thinking it will mean no more fun, etc. That’s definitely not true. Believers have lots of fun in many ways and enjoy family. Yes, there will be some former friends and a few things you may choose not to participate with. However, that is a small sacrifice for the newfound peace and joy that you will experience as you begin your new walk.
