Morning thoughts from Pastor Tim
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
It’s Black Friday and I’m at home!
Linda and I did the BF-thingy a few years ago, getting up at 4am (nothing unusual about that) to go to Wal-mart (nothing unusual about that either) and stand in line with 500 other people (very unusual).
The item we went for, a TV, was stack three high, in a double row for 50 feet down the center aisle.
Two days later many of those TV’s were still there at the same price we bought it so early that Friday morning.
It seems we could have just meandered later in the day or weekend and got that “good deal” on the TV.
Our discussion yesterday was about a member of the family going to a store at 1am to try and get 1 of 15 tickets for a good deal on a laptop computer. The store would not open until 5am.
Stand in line for 4 hours! Not me!
There is no deal worth that.
The thing about these stores is they could make these deals at regular hours.
What if God had a Black Friday?
What if one day a year He offered salvation at 2am and only for the first 20 in line, would you make it?
The deal is already set but you can get it at any time… for now!
The real deal is He is coming back to get those that have already stood in line, He will come again but not to deal with our sins again. This time he will bring salvation to all those who are eagerly waiting for him. Heb 9:28
This is one of those “deals of a lifetime” and many will miss out.
Salvation for someone today could make this Good Friday.
Don’t put off salvation too long!
What about you?
Did you get up early to catch a Black Friday deal?
Tell me your story!
