I was watching a movie the other night about a young man who had been called into the ministry. He ran from his calling and became a very rich investment banker. Not a nice one I might add…
He had also left a young woman who loved him very much at the bus station expecting him to return.
Then story takes a twist…After 15 years he receives an invitation to come hear her speak at a church in a small town near by. He decides to go. As he’s racing down the road in flashy new sports car, it breaks down and who comes to his rescue but…an Angel.
This Angel announces that he is being given a Second Chance. He is transported into the life he didn’t choose. He’ married, has two girls, and is the Preacher of a small church.
You can imagine the ciaos. He struggles with resentment, anger, and bitterness. After a time, He begins to see the love of those around him. Prayers being lifted on his behalf…the love his wife and girls have for him.
One night he is called to minister to a dying man. This man is not a believer and very old. He shares with him the parable of the workers in the vineyard from Matthew 20:1-16.
He wanted him to realize that it’s never too late! No matter when you decide to accept the Lord, our reward is the same, eternal salvation.
God’s mercy and grace is His to give as He sees fit.
The parable from Matthew indicates that several believers weren’t happy
Love Heart, celebrate God’s grace and mercy regardless of when a person come into His saving Grace. It is never to late to serve and it’s never to late to accept Chris as your personal Savior.
CAUTION: Scripture warns, that we have no promise of tomorrow!
Take that second chance to serve the Lord and rejoice when someone comes to serve Him, no matter how late they arrive. ~Deb
