Some people ask, “When is it too late to come to Christ?” The question shows that they have not grasped how incredibly gracious Christ is. He still says, “Come unto me” to everyone who is still living. Today’s devotional is a marvelous illustration of that truth. If you are alive, you’re not to old. Only come at once! God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Isaiah 1:18 English Standard Version (ESV)
18 “Come now, let us reason[a] together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
“If I remember rightly, there was a man who was converted at the age of 103. He was sitting under a hedge, I think in Virginia, and he remembered a sermon that he had heard Mr. Flavel preach at Plymouth; and recalling a striking part of it, he turned to God, and found peace and pardon. He was spared to live three years more, and when he died, this inscription was put over his grave, ‘Here lies a babe in grace, aged three years, who died, according to nature, aged 106.’”
