There are really only two categories of people: those who believe in God and those who don’t believe in God yet. At the Last Day, even the unbeliever will be convinced.
The Bible says, Christ Jesus has been exalted and given the highest name, to which every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord. This has been established by the will of God, for the glory of God. (Philippians 2:10-11)
“Every” leaves no one out. Sure, you can go on, living your life your way as if there is no God. Just know that in the end, when you stand before Him, you will change your mind. But it will be too late.
So you have a choice: believe now or believe later. If you choose now, you can bow at the throne of grace. If you choose later, you will bow at the throne of judgement… convinced but not converted.
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9, NKJV)
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, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:6-7, NKJV)
Hear and heed the urgent appeal, summarized in the lyrics of this old Gospel song attributed to Edward Payson Hammond:
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus,
Come to Jesus just now, just now.
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus just now!
He will save you, He will save you
He will save you, just now, just now
He will save you, He will save you just now!
If you’re on the road to eternal destruction, don’t continue on that path. Look to the Cross of Christ and make a right at the light of God’s Love. NOW!
I am glad I chose now rather than later! Thank you for writing the way you do.
