“Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.”  2Corinthians 8:3b-4 NIV


Read 2 Corinthians 8:1-5

In bold red letters, the word “URGENT!” on the envelope proclaimed I should open the letter immediately.   The return address claimed it was from ‘Law Firm Notification’.   Knowing it must be junk mail and few things are really urgent, I opened the letter which proclaimed my warranty was about to expire on my vehicle and this was the last notice I would receive.  Junk mail it was.

Not all notices we receive are ‘urgent’.   But some are very important.   You may receive notice of a recall on a vehicle or product you purchased.   Your doctor may tell you it is urgent to perform surgery or start a medical treatment.    These are all important …but not as ‘urgent’ as one thing.

So, what is the one thing that is so urgent?   It is urgent you accept JESUS as your LORD AND SAVIOUR.   This is the one life changing experience above all else.   Things of this earth may be important, but they are not urgent.   Every letter or personal warning you may receive of things on this earth are overstated.   They will not go with you or take you into eternity.

Have you put off giving your life to CHRIST?   Do you know HE is the saviour you need today, but you have put it off?  Today is your day to accept your RISEN SAVIOUR.   Right now, go to HIM on your knees and thank HIM for forgiving all your sins.   Feel the loving arms of GOD urgently protecting you.

Today’s prayer:     “Thank YOU, JESUS for giving YOUR life so that I might live.  I urgently give my life to YOU.   Unworthy I am, yet I know YOU make me worthy.  Amen.”
