THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A man bought a new fridge for his house.
To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying:
"Free to good home. You want it, you take it".
For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal.
It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read:
"Fridge for sale $50".
The next day someone STOLE it.
15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.
16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
In the description of Noah and the ark, notice that the door to the ark was closed by God HIMSELF!
Only God knows WHETHER a person will surrender for salvation.
Only God knows WHEN to close the door!
As Christians, it is our duty and our obligation to God that we CONTINUALLY offer salvation through surrender to Christ to all people.
In fact, as a Christian, it is our MANDATE from God to make that offer continually.
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
We receive this mandate from the ONE Who has "authority" to judge ALL men for their eternal end.
We receive this mandate for ALL people.
Not only are we to offer salvation through surrender to Christ, but we are to "teach" them afterward.
Never EVER "give up" on someone you are trying to lead to Christ!
TODAY may be the day that they surrender to His Lordship!
It's our job to NEVER "close the door!"
God will do that HIMSELF, when the time comes.
And it may come soon!
