Week 12: Act before it is too late


Bishop Francis Wale Oke

And David said unto all his servants that were with him at Jerusalem, Arise, and let us flee; for we shall not else escape from Absalom: make speed to depart, lest he overtake us suddenly, and bring evil upon us, and smite the city with the edge of the sword (2 Samuel 15:14).

When Absalom’s rebellion became very hot, David realised that he had to flee Jerusalem very quickly, otherwise he would be killed and Jerusalem would be ransacked. He did not delay. He acted before it was too late. It was that decision to act on time that saved the day.

There is time for everything. There is a time to act; otherwise it would be too late. Many people suffer from procrastination. They keep pushing into an uncertain tomorrow what they ought to have done today. By so doing, so many people have been robbed of the joy of great achievement, the pleasure of great virtues and the blessing of great progress.

Great battles have been lost because someone did not act on time. Great destinies have been ruined because someone delayed a critical action. Precious lives have been wasted because someone delayed appropriate actions. Procrastination is not just a thief of time; it is a thief of destinies. Make sure you are not a victim of procrastination. Act before it is too late.

One critical area where procrastination has destroyed so many people is on the matter of salvation. So many people delay deciding for Christ, choosing to still linger in sin. Most of them eventually die in their sin, going to an eternity of horror, which would have been avoided if they had given their lives to Christ on time. If you know anyone like this, today is the time to urge them to decide for Christ right away. And if you are the one, there is no better day to give your life to Christ than today. Make sure you act before it is too late.

For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6: 2).
