"...In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you. Behold, now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation." - 2 Corinthians 6 V2
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me." - Revelation 3 V20
In the day of judgment many will come to the Lord and justify themselves on the basis of their works, and many will even complain that they never heard God calling them. But all their efforts will be in vain and God in His righteous judgment will cast away the unbelievers and wicked. It is not because of God's voice not reaching the unbelievers but because of their unbelief and stubborn heart that people do not reach out to God. The Bible says, 'Today is the day of salvation'. Some people put off the decision of receiving Christ thinking they will do it in an opportune time after living life to its full. But sadly they do not realize that only Christ can give a full life and He is the only source of eternal life. Now is the accepted time, come to the Saviour and receive life, if you have not already done so. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
