Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


It's Never Too Late

You may be familiar with the pastor who asked a group of children in Sunday school how many of them wanted to go to heaven. All but one little boy raised a hand. When the Pastor asked him why, he said, "Oh, I do want to go to heaven. But if you're getting up a load right now, I can't go. Mama said to come home for lunch right after church."

Rarely do we talk about going to heaven today. And Jesus only used that word to describe going there with one person: the thief on the cross. There were two thieves crucified with Jesus--one mocked Jesus while the other one asked Jesus to remember him in His kingdom. And Jesus said, "Today you will be with Me in Paradise." Jesus knew they would be dead within hours and would enter Paradise together--the place where departed saints await the resurrection of their bodies. 
It's never too late to place your faith in Jesus. Even if your confession is a death-bed conversion like the thief's, Jesus will hear the cry of a repentant, faithful heart. Don't make the eternal mistake of thinking you've waited too late to believe.

Death to a saint is nothing but the taking of a sweet flower out of this wilderness, and planting of it in the garden of paradise.
Thomas Brooks
