Timing Is Everything

It’s been said that we should live practically, as if the Lord’s not returning for another 1,000 years and spiritually like He’s coming back today! It’s good advice. You never know what tomorrow holds. Even if we’re still here tomorrow and the next day, the unsaved around us today may not be. Quite unexpectedly, their time might be running out. You never know!

Timing Is Everything

It’s been said that we should live practically, as if the Lord’s not returning for another 1,000 years and spiritually like He’s coming back today! It’s good advice. You never know what tomorrow holds. Even if we’re still here tomorrow and the next day, the unsaved around us today may not be. Quite unexpectedly, their time might be running out. You never know!

Every time you delay sharing your faith with someone who’s obviously lost and in need of the Lord, you’re playing with their eternal destiny. You have no assurance that there’ll ever be another opportunity, like the one you’re having at that very moment, to have that conversation. There are no guarantees in life. For sure, you have that moment and you dare not waste it. Just a simple word about how God loves them will tell you if they’re hungry for more. And if they’re not, don’t push.

Regardless of their reaction, you’ve done the right thing and God honors your obedience. Even in rejection, you’ve moved that person closer to Jesus by your love. They can’t get away from that! And if they should die in their sin, you’ll not be held accountable.

Indeed, timing is everything! Seize every opportunity God gives you to tell people that He loves them and wants them to spend Eternity with Him in Heaven. That’s the Good News of the Gospel.
