Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6 : 2.
Good morning to you all. The below is the wonderful story which talks about the salvation and its importance.
The school children came to visit the dairy farm of a kind farmer. The farmer had a big sign on the wall which said, “Prepare to meet thy God.” AM 4 : 12. They had many questions about the cows and the farm and also one about the sign. When they asked what the sign implied, the farmer said, “The Lord is coming soon, and we must be ready to meet Him. If we are still in our sins, we will not be ready. But God has sent His beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for us on Calvary's cross. If you tell Him you are sorry you've been naughty and want Him to forgive you, you will be saved. Then you will be ready to meet Him when He comes.”
Little Johnny went home that afternoon, he told his mother, “I've got to get saved before I go to bed tonight.” “Why do you have to be saved tonight?” his mother asked. “Well, the farmer said Jesus is coming soon, and on the wall in the barn it said, ‘Prepare to meet thy God, AM 4:12,' and I never wake up that early, so I need to be saved before I go to sleep.”
You may smile at the child's mistake in thinking that the AM on the sign meant "morning," when really it is the abbreviation for Amos, the book in the Old Testament where the verse is written. But the little boy knew this was something he should not put off. He was going to look after the most important thing in his life right away. What about you? “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” 2 Corinthians 6 : 2. “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin.” 1 John 1 : 7. I hope you all will remember Amos 4 : 12 from now on and the only way to prepare yourself for the day is to be cleansed by the blood of the precious lamb, Jesus. Be prepared!
