What Will it Take? (Romans 13:11)


What will it take for God to reach your soul?

Will it be the tender moment of God using a believer to explain the Scripture to a seeker?

And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
Acts 8:31

Will God need to show His mercy by curing you or your illness or healing a sick loved one?

When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
John 11:4

Will God need to strike someone dead in front of you before He gets your attention?

While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things.
Acts 5:4-5

Will it be the last moment of your life? The thief on the Cross recognized Jesus for who He was, the Lord and Savior. He cried out to him as he hung there dying.

Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
And Jesus said to him, “ Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
Luke 23:42-43

Now is the time to accept our Lord. We can reason with ourselves that we have time to make this decision, that when the time is “right”, we will be able to make the decision. But that right time is now. No excuses can be given.

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
Romans 13:11

What will it take? It only takes a response to God’s offer. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Your eternal destiny can begin anew at this very moment.

Love and respect the Lord; seek His will in your life.
