No Excuses!

Acts 26 King Agrippa has passed from our scene in history. He rose and ruled Israel, but just like us all, he died and is in eternity. Where is he today? Is he standing before God, hearing words all of us should fear? “I never knew you.” He is the example of everyone who denies the Christ. Paul clearly laid out the gospel message, and like many others, King Agrippa answered: “In a short time, you will persuade me to become a Christian.” [Acts 26:28]

It always astounds me that people will choose to deny Christ rather than accept His invitation to life, joy, and peace. Some may say what the king said, and others will say it is good for you but not for me. Others may say another day, another time. What is our excuse as we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ? Will we hear, well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord or the words “I never knew you.”

Today, echo the words of Joshua: as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. [Joshua 24:15]
