"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets." - Matthew 22:37-40

Procrastination on Salvation

"Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, then comes the harvest'? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest." - John 4:35
 Everyday, how many people do you pass who needed you to speak to them? How many, through a simple engagement could have received the salvation of their soul. Are we that busy?

Consider that 80% of Americans consider themselves Christians. Many of them are lying. But if everyone spoke to just one non-believer, how long would it take for everyone to have been sincerely witnessed to? How many would come to know him?

Now is the time! And here is where we start! But I'm a little busy right now, so my maybe tomorrow is better.
"For he says,

"In a favorable time I listened to you,
and in a day of salvation I have helped you."

Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. We put no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love; by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise."
- 2 Corinthians 6 : 2-8
