“I’ll do it later.”
This seemingly harmless statement will be the cause of a magnitude of loss at the judgment seat of Christ.
If you think you will live your own life first, and then later serve the Lord, when you are wealthy enough, wise enough, traveled enough, and have had enough, think again.
A lifetime spent on yourself only creates heavier baggage which is harder to unload when you “get around to” serving the Lord, if you ever get around to it, which most don’t.
It takes time, effort, and study to serve the Lord effectively. Will you be more apt to do this now or later?
Young minds, young bodies, and young lives are needed to fight the good fight of faith.
Young minds learn quicker, and are more flexible to be conformed to the mind of Christ. Young bodies are more able to serve with zeal. Young lives have more time for long term multi generational work (2 Tim 2:2).
Our minds, our bodies, and our lives disappear as we get older.
A lifetime of saying, “I’ll do it later”, creates old men who then make the excuse, “now, I’m too old to do anything.”
You can’t afford to do it later. You are already late (Eph 5:16). Life is short.
Now is the day of salvation, and the best time to prepare, plan, and perform personal ministry for the Lord is now.
“We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain… behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” – 2 Corinthians 6:1-2
Don’t know what to do?
For His glory,
