the cost of waiting until tomorrow

The problem with waiting until tomorrow is the impact changes commensurate with what’s at stake. For instance, if you are waiting until tomorrow to decide if you will wear your new pair of shoes, deciding what new car you will buy, or maybe even what day of the week you will do your food shopping is quite different from waiting to decide if today will be the day that your soul will be rescued through the power of salvation through Christ.

Waiting can be a dangerous game, especially when you decide to wait before accepting the gift of salvation that has been afforded to all who believe. It’s like refusing a valued gift that will enhance your life while providing the covenant benefits of peace, joy, righteousness, health, prosperity, grace, mercy, and eternal life because you just aren’t ready and prefer to wait until a time that is better suited for you.

So many times, waiting can turn into days, weeks, months, and even years. Ultimately after looking back over your life, years would have passed before you have seriously considered the impact that waiting has had on your life. John chapter 10 verse 10, says The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly. The devil’s job is to blind our minds and hearts so that we won’t come into the knowledge of the truth. That means if he can desensitize us to how critical it is to make Christ our Lord and Savior, then that’s one more person who waited, possibly in perpetuity since opportunities have what can be referred to as “Sliding Windows.

Taking too long to make the right life decision makes us vulnerable. Life opportunities are fleeting, and come with conditions. Salvation is the one gift that you should never wait to open. Delaying embracing eternal life is like refusing oxygen when you need air. The element of “time” changes the game and rules. It’s the difference between solidifying the outcome, as opposed to living with the results of your waiting which may require three times the effort to obtain it, or possibly putting it out of reach altogether.

(Isaiah 55:6-7) Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.

Romans 10:9-10

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. It truly is that simple.
