Yesterday Pastor Tim mentioned this verse from the Bible, and it caught my attention for a variety of reasons:
“God overlooked people’s ignorance about these things in earlier times, but now he commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to him. For he has set a day for judging the world” Acts 17:30-31
God has overlooked the things in the past. However, this is only but history. It is the future that God is concerned about. No matter what you may have done in your past, all is forgiven if you come to God and repent (meaning turn away from your past ways).
You see, God is not concerned about what you “did” do – He is concerned about what you ARE doing, and what you are going to do. Turn away from your past sins, turn toward God.
Remember – God reminds us many many times in the Bible, that a judgment day is coming in the future when all people must answer for their life. How do you want to be remembered? How do you want to spend eternity. You see – life has many choices. However, eternity has only two: Heaven or Hell. The only way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ – God’s only Son. Come to Him today – pray for forgiveness, and ask Him to lead your life.
