Don't Miss Heaven
Song of Solomon 5:6
“I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.
The Bible tells us that God’s spirit will not always stive with us. He has given us the plan to Salvation, but He will not make us accept it. There will come a time, if you continue to reject Him, that He will leave you to what you want. Have you ever had someone who continually rejected your love or friendship? Your feelings may not have changed, but there probably came a time that you decided enough was enough. This verse represents the person who has rejected God’s call so many times that He stops calling. Now the person realizes the error of his ways, but it’s too late. This is my grandaddy’s story.
I grew up with a lost grandfather. I was always confused why he always encouraged me to go to church when he didn't go himself. When he finally went to a revival with my parents and accepted Christ at the age of 72, I understood. He had the head knowledge of Christ; he knew that he wouldn't go to heaven without Him. But he had turned down the call to salvation many years ago when he was a young man and thought that he had missed his chance forever. That could have very well been the case had he not had saved family that continued to pray for him. He still could have missed that chance if he was so determined that it was too late that he resisted the invitation to church that one last time. I'm sure there were many years between the time that he turned down that first called to give his heart to Christ until the time he accepted at the age of 72 that had he been able to just get saved in his own right he would have done so. But that is not how it works.
Praise God, through prayers of saved loved ones, God had mercy and gave him another opportunity, which he accepted.But there isn’t a guarantee that will happen with you. Don’t take the chance.
