Week of Dec. 29
The Door Is Not Closed In Revelation 7-8 we read how the trumpets have been sounded and God’s redemptive plan fulfilled. Not all men and women will be saved from an eternal death. Certainly, God’s desire is that every person would come to know Him as Savior and Lord, but many have chosen to follow other gods.
The good news is that it is not too late to know the Savior. As of today, the trumpet has not sounded. The door of eternal opportunity has not closed, and you still have time to make a decision to follow Jesus Christ. Charles Spurgeon writes:
One person may say, “I cannot see how simply trusting Christ and believing God’s witness of Him would save my soul.” To which I would reply, “My dear man, are you never to believe anything but what you can see, and how are you to see this thing till you have tried it? You must believe the gospel on the evidence of God, and not otherwise, or have faith in the record God has given concerning His Son—a faith that takes God at His word. Believe, then, on the Lord Jesus Christ and you have believed God to be true; refuse to trust in Jesus Christ, unless you get some other evidence beyond the witness of God, and you have practically said that God’s testimony is not enough—that is to say, you have made God a liar.”
But God is not a liar. Within Him is all truth and justice. Up until the final moment, He is longing for the lost to accept His gracious gift of salvation. Satan, however, wants to lead us astray by filling our minds with the idea that we don’t need God.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Have you fully surrendered your life and heart to the Savior? If not, today is the day to discover anew the graciousness of His love.
Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God forever and ever. Amen! (Revelation 7:12).
