25. It’s time
Peter tells us that God wants all of us to have time to convert:
“The Lord does not delay his promise, as some regard ‘delay’, but he is patient with you, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter, chapter 3, verse 9
God is in a hurry, because he wants all of us with him, without exception. But he respects us. He waits for us to decide. Are we going to wait until tomorrow? Do we want to convert from the depths of our heart? For God is eternal, but we’re passing through a limited time. Time is the passage between our conception and eternity. The responsibility for an answer is ours.
