Today not Tomorrow

Today not Tomorrow

Read: Matthew 20:1-16

Matthew 20:16 “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”

Eddie, an outspoken atheist, spent his entire life of 50 years denying the existence of God. Then he contracted a debilitating disease, and his health slowly deteriorated. As he stay in a hospice house awaiting death, Eddie was visited almost everyday by some Christian friends he had known in high school. They told him again of Christ’s love. But the closer Eddie came to dying, the more it appeared he was not interested in God.

One Sunday, a pastor stopped by to visit. To everyone’s surprise, Eddie prayed with him and asked Jesus for forgiveness and salvation. A few weeks later, he died.

Eddie denied Christ for 50 years and spent just 2 weeks loving and trusting Him. But because of his faith, he will experience forever God’s presence, glory, love, majesty, and perfection. Some may argue that this isn’t fair. But according to Jesus’ parable in Matthew20, it’s not about fairness. It’s about God’s goodness and grace {vv. 11-15}.

Have you waited such a long time to trust Jesus for Salvation that you think it might be too late? Consider the thief on the cross, who put his faith in Jesus just before he died.

[Luke 23:39-43]

And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Trust Jesus now, and receive His gift of Eternal Life. It’s not too late! – David Branon

If God is calling you today,
Then trust in Christ without delay;
Tomorrow it will be too late
If death occurs and seals your fate. – Sper

It is a dangerous presumption to say, “Tomorrow,” when God says, “Today!”
