For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
There are a variety of attitudes people hold concerning the Lord Jesus Christ. In Acts 26, we have three men: Their names are Festus, Paul, and King Agrippa. Each of these men represents a different attitude toward the Lord.
Festus represents those who hate the Lord. He was antagonistic toward the Gospel message. He accused Paul of being “mad.” People also said the same thing about Jesus when He was here (Mark 3:21). No one says that about people who go all out for money, pleasure or power. But, they do about those who go all out for the Lord!
Then we have Paul, he represents those who honour the Lord. He was all out for the Lord, and living every minute of his life for Jesus (Phil 1:21).
Then there is Agrippa. He represents those who delay making commitment to the Lord; They sit on the fence rather than making a decision about Him. People like Agrippa are right on the verge of coming to Jesus, but for some reason, they delay. Agrippa was close, he was almost saved, he was “almost Christian.” Almost saved, but totally lost.
Do you know you need Jesus? Do you have a desire to be free from your sins and to be saved? If you can say “Yes!” to these two questions, then you are “almost” there. But, I hope you know by now that “almost” is not good enough. If Jesus is calling you, throw down your sins, your pride, and the rest of your objections and come to Him right now.
Do you know someone who is “almost” there? Pray for them today.
My God and Father, I pray this day for all who are seeking You. For Ministers, Preachers and Evangelists, that they would make the Gospel clear. Use me Lord, to point someone to You. In the Saviour's name, I pray. Amen.
