Do It Now
"Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."1
Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car
and I dented it?
I thought you'd kill me, but you didn't.
And remember the time I dragged you to the beach,
and you said it would rain, and it did?
I thought you'd say, "I told you so," but
Do you remember the time I flirted with all the
guys to make you zealous, and you were?
I thought you'd leave me, but you didn't.
Do you remember the time I spilled strawberry pie
all over your car rug?
I thought you'd hit me, but you didn't.
And remember the time I forgot to tell you the
dance was formal and you showed up in jeans?
I thought you'd drop me, but you didn't.
Yes, there were lots of things you didn't do;
But you put up with me, and you loved me, and you
There were lots of things I wanted to make up to
you when you returned from Vietnam.
But you didn't.2
Suggested Prayer: "Dear God, please help me to be fully aware of every issue in my life that I need to take care of, every impaired relationship I need to resolve, every responsibility I need to fulfill, and be absolutely certain that I have made my life right with You, and have resolved every one of above matters so that my life will be in order when my time on earth is ended—and I stand before You to give an account of my life. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."
NOTE: If you are not absolutely certain that your life is right with God and that you have received His gift of salvation, please read the article, "How to be Sure You're a Real Christian," at: www.actsweb.org/christian.
