Just some thoughts I had while I was reading the Bible this morning.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some me count slackness, but is longsuffering to usward, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
My whole life and I am sure yours too, I have heard that the Lord is coming back. People have been saying this since the very day Jesus ascended into Heaven. I feel like the coming of the Lord is very close at hand and many others say the same thing but it may or may not be true. Jesus could come today, tomorrow or even thousands of years from now. The Bible says that no man knows the day nor the hour. Sometimes that uncertainty makes us feel like He really isn't coming but even if He doesn't come back in our lifetime, we will still meet our end. Our days are numbered and we won't be living this life here forever. God isn't being lazy or just dwaddling but He is waiting with the hope that every single one of us would make the decision to make Heaven our eternal home. If God would have came 10 years ago then hell would have been my destiny. God waited and gave me a chance to make it right. I still have family and friends that haven't chosen to make Heaven their home and I ask God for more time, just a little more time so that they might be saved too. But we have to realize that at some point time is up and we don't know when that point is. Have you put off giving your life to God because you want more time. Life can end in a blink of an eye and then we have no chance to give our life to God and sadly hell will be our eternal destiny with no way to change it. Please, don't keep taking that chance on having more time. This very moment confess to God you are a sinner (guess what, He already knows every thing you have done anyway) tell Him you are sorry for your sins (we all have them, big or little, they will keep us out of Heaven if we don't repent of them) and believe that Jesus died in your place so that your sins could be pardoned and tell the world that Heaven is now your final destination.
