Choose Now While The Door Is Open

August 31

“For the grace of God that brings salvation
has appeared to all men, teaching us that,
denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly, righteously,
and Godly in the present age,
looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing
of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ…”
Titus 2:11-13

“LOOKING FOR …”

For some, the glorious appearing of Jesus Christ is a greatly anticipated event. It motivates them to reach out to others that they might be included. For others, it is a most dreaded event. And for the multitudes, the coming of the Lord isn’t something they’re interested in one way or another. They either don’t know, or they don’t care; their eyes are only on their own interests. For those who dread it and for those who simply don’t care, the motto is “eat, drink, and be merry…” Have your best life now.

“LOOKING FOR …”

The anticipation of the Rapture motivates the former to live Godly lives and reach as many souls as possible, knowing that once the door is closed it’s over. God’s Word says that he isn’t slack concerning this promise, lest those who have waited a long time be discouraged, but that he is not willing that anyone perish; he’s holding the door open. But there is a day, an hour, when that door will close. (2nd Peter 3:9) And it will be all over. So we plead, “get right with God.”

“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ,
as though God were pleading through us:
we implore you on Christ’s behalf,
be reconciled to God.”
2nd Corinthians 5:20

Some will heed, most will not.

It comes down to the choices we make. Now, before this event takes place, make your choice. When the door closes, choice will be no more. Eternal fates are sealed.

Jesus said it will “as in the days of Noah.”
(Luke 17:26-30)
