~ John 3:17-19 ~
“For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.”
When a deal is sealed, its terms become binding. When a deal is sealed by someone who has power to make it happen, it is worth considering and taking seriously. When that deal is sealed by someone in whose nature there is not even a shadow of deceit, it can be trusted. When that deal is extended by one who can change your destiny forever, it calls for undivided attention and serious consideration. When God extended His grace, it was extended to ALL people and for ALL time, till the end of time. The truth is, it is not something you need to wait to find out at the last minute. You can enter in now. When the curtain closes the deal is off, the closing bell can be anytime and any day. My advice is to book your seat before it is too late. I’d rather have a deal that is already paid for than one that involves a gamble, one in which the terms are well laid out and very certain, one that holds promise here and now and also for eternity. As Charles Spurgeon puts it, “all you have to do is look and believe”. The deal is on, eternal LIFE or eternal DEATH, it’s yours to choose. Soon there shall be the sound of the trumpet call and the game will be over. This is your touchdown moment, make it count and seal the victory. The ball is in the air, heading in your direction, close to the end zone. The clock is ticking.
