Time Is Running Out

Posted on: 7-15-112015

Today many will celebrate Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday…a time to live it up before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent.  Many will overindulge in pleasantries today because tomorrow is a time of focus and sacrifice.  Those who celebrate Lent often give up something they enjoy, such as alcohol, chocolate, or TV.  This act of sacrifice is to help them focus on Jesus’ death and resurrection at the culmination of Lent.  As I thought about the indulgence before the sacrifice, I realized that there are many who have a “Mardi Gras” mentality every day. They know they need to lose weight, but they’re just going to have one more day filled with chocolate cake.  They know they need to exercise, but they’re just going to sit on the couch and watch TV one more day.  They know they need to save money, but they’re just going to go on one more shopping spree. They know they should have a serious relationship with Christ, but they are going to sow their wild oats for just a little longer. For those putting off a relationship with Christ, the consequences may prove to be deadly.  Tomorrow is promised to no one!  Time to make a decision for Christ may not always be available!  And if time runs out before a decision is made, an eternity in hell is the price that will be paid. If you’ve been putting off a relationship with Christ, don’t wait any longer.  Act now, while there is still time.

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.”  Hebrews 9:27
