If you’re like me you tend to put things off when they are unpleasant or difficult. While that may work sometimes, it is dangerous at others. Today’s devotional will explain. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
James 1:13-15 English Standard Version (ESV)
13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
“Is it hard now to yield yourself to the Lord? It will be harder in a year’s time, even if you are spared till then, for a man’s habits harden every day that he lives. They spin new webs about him, they hold him fast, poor fly that he is, every hour that he lives. If it ever be an easy matter to bow before the Lord, it is easier at this moment than it will be tomorrow. Say not, therefore, ‘I am waiting for a more convenient season;’ for the most convenient season that ever can come is now.”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1897), p. 65]
