Maybe tomorrow…

“For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee:  behold, now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation.”  II Corinthians 6:2 (KJV)

    Are you a procrastinator?  If so, maybe you have delayed the very most important thing in your life: eternal life.  The sad thing about it; it costs you nothing and most people will not take the time out to receive it.  God love you so much that he gave his only begotten son.  God also have given you ampler time to receive his perfect gift “Salvation”.

    Life is not in the abundance of things you possess, but life is in the creator of all things, “God”.  He longs to have a personal relationship with you.   Have you ever had thoughts racing in your mind telling you….go to the left….don’t do that….I got a funny feeling about this….  Those thoughts are not a “something” they are a “someone” God’s Spirit. 

   God desire to be the guiding light in your life, which is why he sacrificed his son.  He sent his only begotten son, “Jesus” on this earth to feel every rejection, disappointment, sickness, temptation, stress, and all afflictions we can only imagine.  God can feel your hurt and pain.  He doesn’t only feel it, but he also lifts and heals your burdens.  Why not give him a chance of a life time, you will not regret it, because it will lead you to eternal peace.

    Isn’t it great to have a friend who cares so much about you that his benefits don’t cost a thing?  So today, starting in 2008, while the thought, “may be tomorrow” is still pondering in your mind, save it for something else on tomorrow and receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior Today!
