Ignoring the Warnings

"Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment."1

I read about a West Virginia State Trooper who stopped a woman driver for going 15 miles over the speed limit. After handing her a ticket, the driver asked him, "Don't you give out warnings?"

"Yes, ma'am," he replied. "They're all up and down the road. They say, 'Speed Limit 55.'"2

I can imagine that many people—who have rejected God all their life and failed to accept His forgiveness for their sins—when they stand before God at the end of life's journey and are required to give an account of their life and receive God's judgment are going to want to say the same as the lady above: "Don't you give out warnings?"

I can imagine God saying, "Yes, sir/madam, my Word, the Bible, is filled with warnings from cover to cover to prepare for life after death. And every year of your life you were reminded of my offer of forgiveness and eternal life at both Christmas and Easter."

And this is what they will hear God say to them: "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!"3

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank You that You have warned me over and over to prepare to meet You face to face after I die. Please help me to make my life right with You.  Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

And, Dear friend, if you have never put your life right with God, He is giving you that opportunity today. For God's Invitation go to: http://tinyurl.com/6k49w, or for further help to know God go to: http://tinyurl.com/8glq9.
