It's Never Too Late


It's never too late for anything...even change...even redemption. Nobody is too far down the road that he can no longer change nor be redeemed. That is the lie fostered by Satan- that one can be so steeped in sin and wickedness that he becomes unredeemable. The grace of God is so infinitely limitless that even the whole world of sin can be erased by it and make a new man out of the depraved former self. The only price we have to pay for that inestimable grace of salvation and deliverance is to humble ourselves before God, confess our sins to Him and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior, and let Him wash clean all the stains and blots in our souls brought about by sin. We have been alienated with our Father because of pride, the insatiable quest for self glory and pleasure seeking. And we believe the lie of Satan- that the ultimate goal of one's life on earth is the pursuit of one's happiness; that as long as one is happy then everything is alright with his life. That is a big lie, one big rotten lie. We were created by God for His own purpose and never for our own. He made us overseers over all His creation but definitely subject to His own infinite lordship over our own lives. He created the whole world for us to subjugate, cultivate and nurture for our own sustenance. He gave us laws to teach us to obey His will. And finally, He sent His only begotten Son to redeem us from our slavery to sin, disease and death which Satan had used to enslave us. The only price we have to pay is humility on our part and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior. There is no other way to heaven. "Jesus answered, 'I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6). And, "salvation is found in no one else for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). As long as one is still alive, he can never be too far off to be redeemed. Let us retrace our steps back to the fold of God's kingdom.

Yup it's never too late. Before I met Rose, I was wandering with my faith. I don't follow any religion or whatsoever, but when I met her, it gave me light and direction that in forming a family we have to believe in one faith... Faith to Jesus that is!

It's never too late to come to Jesus.
If I can add:
The Holy Spirit and the bride say: "Come!" Let those who hear say: "Come!" Anyone who wants to take the free gift of the water of life should do so.Very important message and much needed. Thank you Mel!

God bless you and your family!
