Why Let Your Savior Wait?
As much as God loves you, and as
wonderful as Christ's salvation is, this love and salvation can come to you
only if you are willing to repent of your sins, accept Jesus Christ as Lord and
Savior, and are baptized into Christ.
When the time comes for you to
leave this world and face God's judgment, whether or not your sins have been
paid for will be all that matters.
Since we do not know when that
time will come, we must heed this urgent calling:
"Seek the Lord while he may be found, call
upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous
man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon" (Isaiah 55:6,7).
True faith means acting on what
you believe once you understand God's word. Indecision is just unbelief in
Christ has done everything. You
don't need to wait until you are good enough for God, because no one can ever
be good enough for God without the help of Christ.
God is ready to accept you as you
are, with all your brokenness, despair, and misery. You just have to make the
choice of accepting him and his free gift of eternal life.
Our loving Father is waiting
patiently for you to come back to him. Why remain in the fleeting and deadly
pleasure of sin when your loving Father is waiting with open arms, ready to
welcome you into to the freedom and blessings in his house? Do not reject him
any longer. Come back to God and start a new life with him today.
"And now why do you wait? Rise and be
baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on his name" (Acts ).
