Who Are You Burning Your Candle For?


BIBLE MEDITATION:

For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if you, through the Spirit, mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live. Romans 8:13

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

We preachers are fond of saying, “Get right with God. You may die!” It is far better to say, “Get right with God. You may live!” The greatest joy in life is living for Jesus. Why waste more time? There’s a life to live!

Friend, the best thing you can say about a life lived without Christ is that it’s a wasted life. Billy Sunday, a revival preacher from the 1920s, said repenting and accepting Christ on your deathbed is “burning the candle of life for the devil, and then blowing the smoke in God’s face.”

Don’t choose to live and die like that.

ACTION POINT:

If you’re not saved, it’s not too late. If you want to be saved—wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you’ve done—Jesus wants to save you. Repent and believe and you will be saved.
