There is supposed to be no sinner in our world today. This is just because we have enough examples in the life of the people of the old. We read about what happened because of sin of Achan; how Moab was cursed; how God dealt with King David due to his sin of adultery and covetousness; how Ananias and Saphira died instantly; and how Miriam and Aaron opposed Moses and what happened to them. What about Korah, Datham and Abiram? Even Israel – most of their generations were destroyed. In the time of Noah, I think you can still remember what happened. If not that Israel is a chosen generation, we wouldn’t have heard of her any longer.
The reason you are still alive is because you are a chosen one, it is because of God’s grace upon your life; don’t you observe it? You are supposed to have been destroyed and forgotten long time ago, but because of His mercy, you are still in the land of the living. If God waited for a long time like this for those sinners of the old, they would have repented but God doesn’t have enough time for them. If not Jesus that is pleading for your cause everyday, you would have been in hell fire by now! Therefore, now is the time to repent; don’t wait till any other time, it may be disastrous.
Jesus had done a lot for you, if He had pleaded as such for Sodom and Gomorah, they wouldn’t have been destroyed. Though, Abraham did but not Jesus – His blood did a lot for you and it is still speaking better things on your behalf, don’t let His effort over you be a waste. Sodom had no opportunity that was given to Capernum.
Don’t be like Chorazin and Bethsaida, that many mighty works were wrought in them, yet they don’t repent. If these mighty works were done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented. Many sinners did not have the opportunity you are having. There Jesus had come long time ago – they had died and in hell fire (they had observed their own Second Coming of Jesus.)
Hear what the Lord Jesus said in Mathew 11:24. He said, “it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of Judgement than for you.” The effort he has expended just because of you is too much; He died because of you and He is interceding on your behalf everyday. If you don’t repent, it is going to be tougher for you on the Judgement Day than some people.
Be wise and come back Home. Have a re-think like that proverbial prodigal son. He had a re-think and came back to his father.
The time to repent is now!
