Many people today look at their lives and feel that there is no hope for them. They believe they have lived such a horrible life there can be no forgiveness. It is up to all Christians to remind these people that as long as they have breath in their body and the Lord has not come, there is still time to make a change. While we may not be able to change our past, we have every opportunity to change our future. We can move forward from this point and begin a life of good. Remind them of the life of Paul and all the evil he did prior to change. Then show them how he was one of the Lord’s greatest spokesman and that because of his change he knew he would have a home in heaven despite his past.
I saw the following quote and thought it fit well with this concept…
The Word of God clearly teaches that a person can choose to change and that is exactly what the Lord desires. But, we must also remember and remind others that there will be a point when it is too late. It is up to man to decide to act before this time comes.
One final thought, if you do believe you can change, don’t let Satan deceive you into waiting until it’s too late
