Later Than You Think


It is tragic: there’s not only anarchy in the world and apostasy in the church. There’s also apathy in the pew. People just roll over and yawn in the face of God and go back to sleep.

The alarm has sounded. I believe Jesus Christ is at the threshold and the trumpet is about to sound.

It may be later in your life than you think. You only have so many more minutes, hours, and days to serve the Lord Jesus. James 4:14 says, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”

It is also later in the day of opportunity than we may think. We now have opportunities that are unparalleled to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. When Jesus was here on earth, He said, “I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).

There are a lot of things you can do, but there’s one thing you cannot do when you get to heaven: you cannot win souls. All the soul-winning you are ever going to do you must do while you are on this earth. And it may be later in that day of opportunity than you think.
