GO Quickly: People are Eternally Perishable

Stories abound of help arriving just one moment too late.  Often disaster lurks in delays.

A minister said (in my words), at the closing of his evangelistic sermon, “Please go home and think about this message.  If you are ready to commit to Christ, come back tomorrow evening and we will lead you in making that commitment.”

That night the infamous Chicago fire burst into flames and people who had attended the evangelist’s service were eternally gone.  Never again would the evangelist delay.  He would call people to repentance immediately.

Look in everyone’s eyes that you see today.  See them through the truth of their perishability.

Tell them quickly.

Don’t delay.
