Today’s discussion is on Better Late Than Never
A speaker was asked to be a guest at a group of senior citizens and the topic was on John 3:7 “You must be born again”.
As the speaker began to discuss the subject there was one woman that appeared to have a downcast face. She was asked if she had ever been born again and if she had sought Christ and His forgiveness. Dropping her head she replied, “No, I haven’t”. She was asked if she would like to seek Him now. The elderly woman replied “I’m afraid I’ve left it a bit late”, but the response of the speaker was “Better late than never”. As they prayed together the elderly woman became a joyful “babe in Christ”. Although her life on earth was coming to a close, her new life in Christ was eternal.
This is a reminder to us all that God is still knocking at the door of our lives. It’s also a solemn warning that “too late” is a possibility. As someone has said, “Don’t wait to be saved until the eleventh hour—–you might die at 10:30!”.
Whatever your age, if you’ve never been born again, seek the Lord now, while He may be found. (Isaiah 55:6).
Don’t expect to have to tomorrow what is offered you today. Psalm 103:15-16 says, “As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth; For the wind passeth over it and it is gone, and the place thereof shall know it no more. Jesus asks you to follow and trust in Him. You can’t repent too soon but soon it may be too late.
John 3:3 – Jesus said “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
