Here are some excuses that won’t work on the Judgment Day. Lord, I didn’t know enough! “Thy word is light to my path” (Psalm 119:105). Lord, I didn’t know which church to be a member of! “The churches of Christ greet you (Romans 16:16). Lord, I didn’t think I could hold on! “I can do all things through Christ” (Philippians 4:13). Lord, I thought sincerity was enough! “Not every one who said Lord, Lord shall enter heaven; only those who do the will of the Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). Lord, I thought my preacher was right! “They searched the scriptures daily to see if those things were true” (Acts 17:11).
Lord, I didn’t think I was good enough! “Such were some of you, but now you are washed, sanctified and justified” (1 Corinthians 6:11). Lord, I was afraid I would offend my family and friends! “He who loves family more then me, isn’t worthy of me” (Matthew 10:37). Lord, going to church wasn’t popular! “We must obey God rather than man (Acts 5:29). Lord, there were too many hypocrites in the church! “All must stand before the judgment seat of Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:10). Lord, I thought I had plenty of time to get right! God said, fool, tonight you will die (Luke 12:20). Lord, I thought you didn’t exist! “A fool has said, there is no God and such people are corrupt” (Psalm 14:1). Lord, I thought your word was too old fashion for the times! “The word of God abides forever” (1 Peter 1:22-25).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
