Don’t make the mistake of thinking you have more time!

“D.L. Moody called it the biggest blunder of his life.

It happened on October 8, 1871, during a preaching series in Farwell Hall, Chicago. His text was “What then shall I do with Jesus which is called Christ.”

At the conclusion of the sermon Moody said he would give the people one week to make up their minds about Jesus. He then turned to Ira Sankey for a solo, and Sankey sang “Today the Saviour Calls.”

But by the third verse Sankey’s voice was drowned out by the noise outside the hall. The great Chicago fire had begun, and the flames were even then sweeping toward the Hall. The clanging of the fire bells and the noise of the engines made it impossible to continue the meeting.

In the years that followed, Moody wished that he had called for an immediate decision for Christ.”

(The source of the above quote is

The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 burned about 1,200,000 acres, destroyed about 17,450 buildings, killed about 250 people and left about 90,000 homeless.

Are you ready to meet God?

Just as those at the time of the Chicago fire, you may not have a week or a day or even an hour before disaster strikes and possibly even your death.

Bottom Line:

Now is the time to repent of and confess your sins and accept The Lord God Jesus Christ’s free gift of Salvation!

Not next week, next year, next month, or any time in the future. NOW is the time.
