KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 12:20 KJV “But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?”
I shared the gospel with a young man but he said he would respond when he was ready. I kept talking and appealing to him to make a concrete decision to follow Jesus, yet he kept postponing his decision to make Jesus Lord of his life. One day I received a call, that informed me that, he had been involved in an automobile accident and died instantly. This man had been anticipating to make his decision to make Jesus Lord of his life in the future, yet that future never came. Tomorrow is never yours.
In our key scripture, the Lord Jesus spoke about a parable in which a rich man had stored up so much goods and spoke to his soul to be merry and relax because he had so much to enjoy for the rest of his life. The Lord said. God spoke to him and said, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of you. My brother or sister tomorrow does not belong to you. God is the owner of your soul, and he determines whether you see tomorrow or not. There are two ends to the life and activities of the man who does not know Jesus. The day of your death or the day the Lord will come. If you do not die and go to hell, you would meet Jesus when he comes. THE ONLY CONDITION TO MAKE THESE TWO OCCASIONS A GLORIOUS MOMENT IS TO MAKE JESUS LORD OF YOUR LIFE
Now this is the Biblical advice to you.
2Corinth 6:2 KJV ” (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.). Today is yours. You can make the best of the moment today. Now is the acceptable time, now is the day of salvation. Do not postponed your salvation. Just as you would never attempt to postponed breathing so should you not postponed your salvation. It is extremely dangerous to die without knowing Jesus as your Lord. In Luke 16:19–31, the Rich man who did not know God died and sadly realized he was in hell fire. Tomorrow is God’s. Dying without Jesus means hell fire is your ultimate location. Give your life to the master of your soul today. The man I spoke about in the first paragraph, said he would make his decision Tomorrow. Tomorrow never came to him. Tomorrow may never come to you. Make it now.
Dear heavenly Father, I will no longer postponed my salvation. I believe in Jesus who died for my sins and rose up on the third day, now I declare Jesus is the Lord of my life. Amen
Luke 16:23 KJV” And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom”.
Mark 9:47 KJV “And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire”:
