God made us to live every day in reverent obedience to Him (Ecclesiastes 12:13). He made us so that we would find our greatest happiness and fulfillment in that obedient lifestyle. Every day that we live some other way is an exercise of His perfect patience. That patience is plentiful now, but a day is coming when God will be patient no more.
“Or do you presume on the riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.
“He will render to each one according to His works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, He will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality”
What are you waiting for? The God who created you and can redeem you with the blood of His Son deserves your devotion. Your maximum satisfaction with life waits on it. Your eternal destiny rides on it. God’s love is thriving, yet His judgment is settled.
Can we help you to repent, obey the truth, do good, and enjoy glory, honor, immortality and eternal life? Let us help now, while the patience of God prevails.
