“But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.” (Luke 16:25) KJV
Do you know that sometimes we only value a thing after we have lost it?
Sometimes people use their health to get wealth when it is in excellent condition, and then they neglect health.
Later they use the wealth to try and repair the health, but it’s often too late.
In Luke 16:19-31, we see a man who tried to do certain things, but for him, it was already too late.
What did he do too late?
He prayed too late.
Don’t forget that prayer is vital in our Christian life.
Having a Christian life without a prayer life is impossible.
This man started to pray… but it was already too late for him.
He believed too late.
His faith was a historical faith (`Father Abraham`).
”God has many children, but not even a single grandchild.”
He is only a father, not a grandfather.
God wants a personal relationship with every single one of us.
True faith is a faith built on the Solid Rock of Jesus Christ.
He repented too late.
True repentance is a radical turning from sin living a life for God.
You’re leaving behind your old way of life, and you’re turning to God’s way of life.
These things are vital for us to go to heaven.
Don’t try and do them when it is too late for you.
Start doing them today, now.
“For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation). Behold, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, now is the day of salvation! [Isa. 49:8.]” 2 Corinthians 6:2 AMPC
Completely yield over that situation to God Today.
Don’t let it be too late like that rich man in the text above (Luke 16:19-25)
Don’t wait till the torments start.
Seek God NOW.
