A More Convenient Time
By Sylvia E Blakely
A more convenient time is the greatest sin of all.
Rejecting the Holy Spirit guarantees a place in hell.
If any is convicted by the Holy Spirit – Move!
It’s not an inconvenience, it’s God calling out of love!
Perhaps sometime later… old and lying on a bed,
You call but no one answers, you’re dying and afraid.
God’s offer of salvation isn’t all to do with you!
It’s by God’s grace and mercy the gospel comes to view.
You cannot switch God on and off or make Him wait a while,
Or say, I’m doing fine just now, but come back when I call!
God’s Spirit reveals Jesus, His Son who died for sin,
Reject Him and die condemned; Receive Him and be forgiven!
There’s a Bible story that may be read below,
Of Felix who rejected God and told His messenger to go.
Make sure you come to Jesus; this may be God’s last call?
There may be no tomorrow, just today or not at all.
‘And after some days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish,
he sent for Paul and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.
Now as he reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come,
Felix was afraid and answered, Go away for now;
when I have a convenient time I will call for you.’
