what do i need to do right now, 2009???
What do I need to do right now,
God has been patient and merciful to the human race for almost 6,000 years since we first sinned. Yet we continue to become more sinful and more rebellious. We are very near the time when the wrath of God will be poured out on all of us who refuse to repent and worship Him.
God has given each of us the power of choice and a period of time on earth as probation. This probationary period is an opportunity to repent and to have faith in Christ. My probation and your probation will end sometime between now and the end of 2015 and it may well be sooner rather than later. The most important thing we can do right now is to give ourselves completely to God in humility and repentance and by faith to receive Jesus as our personal Savior.
Now is the time to seek God, while He may be found. Now is the time to repent. Today is the day for salvation.
“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2.
“Seek the LORD while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the LORD,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6,7.
“Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.” Hebrews 4:7.
I invite you to accept Jesus as your personal Savior, right now. Ask Him to forgive your sins and thank Him for dying for you. Ask Jesus to teach you more of the truth from the Bible.
If you currently keep the seventh-day Sabbath as a holy rest day, I invite you to ask God for a humble, teachable, repentant spirit. God is urgently calling you to repentance and wholehearted service for Him. Probationary time will end first for those who already “have the truth”, for those who are of the “house of God”.
“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17.
Dear reader, God loves you very much. He wants to live with you forever. I appeal to you to carefully consider your priorities and to choose today whom you will serve.
Now is the important time for each of us. We cannot wait until the fall of 2015 to get ready for Jesus to come. During the next few years Jesus Christ will judge every person on earth. For some of us, our probation will end today, for others it will be a few years. But everyone will make his final choice before the second coming of Jesus.
Choose now to serve the Lord with your whole heart, soul, mind and strength.
