‘Almost’ is Not Enough
It is sometimes said of an individual who has not yet obeyed the gospel, "I believe he is almost ready to be baptized," or that "she is close to becoming a Christian!"
Friend, are you one of those people? Can we not somehow impress upon you:
- That "almost" is not sufficient to make one a Christian;
- That being "close" is not the same thing as being "in Christ";
- That you are still in a LOST condition;
- That Christ is coming in judgment one day?
It is essential for you to note the words of Paul in 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 where he states that those "who do not obey the gospel … will pay the penalty of eternal destruction." We URGE you to take a serious look at your life, your need of salvation, and the hope that can be found only "in Christ." Obey the gospel TODAY!
