Repentance only works if there is a tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. The procrastination of faith is faith not experienced if tomorrow never comes. ~ Steve Finnell ~ THE PROCRASTINATION OF FAITH BY STEVE FINNELL Believers in Christ, as well as, non-believers are guilty of procrastination of faith. Believers in Christ postpone dealing with their spiritual problems, believing tomorrow will be soon enough. Non-believers think time is on their side, that tomorrow is the day of salvation. Tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. James 4:14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.(NASB) If you are Christian but are living an unrepentant sinful lifestyle, do you really want to wait until tomorrow to repent? Revelation 16:15 ("Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will see his shame.")(NASB) If you are not a Christian do you want to wait until tomorrow before you, believe-John 3:16, repent-Acts 3:19, confess- Romans 10:9 and are baptized in water-Acts 2:38? (SALVATION IS AVAILABLE TODAY---TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME) 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief , in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.(NASB) If you are believer in Christ and know in your heart that water baptism is essential for salvation, but you are waiting until tomorrow to start teaching it to others for fear of losing your preaching position or not wanting to be condemned by family and fellow church members, remember there is no guarantee of tomorrow. Psalms 144:4 Man is like a mere breath; His days are like a passing shadow. (NASB) If you are telling the world that only a select few have been preselected for salvation, then, the time of repentance is now. No man knows what tomorrow will bring. (All who hear the gospel and are obedient to God's terms for pardon will be saved.) 1 Thessalonians 5:2 For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.(NASB) Does it matter if churches look and act more like the world than the Lord's church? Can churches use man-made doctrine as the rule for faith and practice if they make a pledge to change tomorrow? Can churches wait until tomorrow to mirror the church found in the New Testament Scriptures? Revelation 3:3 So remember what you have received and heard; keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you.(NASB) Repentance only works if there is a tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. The procrastination of faith is faith not experienced if tomorrow never comes.
