It doesn’t matter if you’re 1 inch from the cross or 1000 yards from the cross, God still wants you!! 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.” God has told the sinful world, in no uncertain terms, to repent (Mark 6:12; Luke 24:47; Acts 3:19; 17:30). To repent means to change your mind from the embrace of sin and rejection of Christ to rejection of sin and embrace of Christ. Those who refuse to repent and turn to Christ in faith will suffer eternal consequences. This is why Paul reminds us in 2 Corinthians 6:2, “…now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation!” So, if you’ve been straddling the fence stop resisting the voice and pull of the Holy Spirit. Think about it, there was a time when the Lord shut the door of the ark, and the flood swept everyone outside the ark away (Genesis 7:16) and there came another time when the wedding party began, and those who were not ready for the coming of the bridegroom were locked out (Matthew 25:1–13). Beloved of a God, it’s up to you to accept or reject. Don’t shoot the messenger rather, open your heart to the Message of grace, peace, mercy, forgiveness, and love!
Today, is the day for your salvation!
