Salvation is not to be delayed for all of the obvious reasons that passionate love is not to be delayed. God loves you, has a powerfully effective plan for your life, and it's time to stop delaying your day of embracing the Lordship of Christ Jesus and submitting every following decision to the authority of God's written Word in the Bible.
Why put off the most exciting relationship you'll ever have in this life another second? It's time to stop making excuses. It's time to stop having God at the bottom of your “to do list.” Lord Jesus went through public humiliation for you in order for you to have private intimacy with God Almighty!
Nothing about tomorrow is holier than today, other than the obvious with Judgment Day. Nothing proceeds from wisdom that you can possibly bring up about waiting another day. It's [your] time to get things straightened out with God, with your forgiveness issues, and with beginning an entirely new walk with God, His Word, and your fellow man.
Every legitimate day of success, that's based upon principles that you can go to bed and sleep peacefully about having acted upon, comes from the Holy Spirit and God's written Word, the Bible. I'm not a fan of the “tomorrow is promised to no one” spiel, and would rather simply say that God's got all of the beauty you'd hate to keep waiting on you. We make fools of ourselves, much too often, over those we find genuinely attractive. God is the most attractive being in the whole universe! If anybody deserves the clumsiness or your full audacity, it's Him!
Romans 10:9 says if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Lord of your life, believing in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Pray with me for a moment, based upon this Scripture and numerous others that assert that you can have clarity of knowledge of the very moment you and God started a new thing, officially:
"Father, in Jesus' Name, I want to thank You for having sent Jesus to be the Lord of my life. Thank You, Father, that He paid the ransom to free me from sin, and that He lives to bring me to You and to Your purposes for my life! I choose to believe with my heart that You've raised Him from the dead and from this moment forward I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life in everything that pertains to my life and being. No matter my decisions that I'm faced with from this day forward, I put the Bible as first place in my life FULLY BELIEVING that as I stand accountable to You with each day of my life that each of Your promises in Your Word will remain accountable to bringing to pass every aspect of Your nature in me and I expect more and more of Your power to be operative in my life from this day forward making up the difference between what I lack and where I need to be, in Jesus' Name. Amen!"
