For the last several months I had planned to upgrade my phone from a iPhone 5S to something newer.
Some apps no longer worked because of updates and some things my tech guy at church wanted to upload to my phone wouldn’t upload. Other friends and family teased me about me needing to upgrade.
I was determined to keep it till it died. Well, I got my wish.
The other day my procrastination caught up with me. My phone started to freeze on me – the day I needed to call certain people and was waiting on some important calls.
When I went to the phone store to see about a new phone, I couldn’t get the saved data to transfer over to my new phone. To get it done was going to be a lot more complicated.
I suffered the consequences of waiting.
There are people everywhere who are procrastinating about their decision to follow Jesus. They think they have all of the time in the world. They plan to live their lives to satisfy selfishness and to enjoy being their own boss.
The scripture tells us in Hebrews 9:27 that every person born on this earth is destined to suffer death, and every person will be judged and will have to give accountability for the life they have lived and the decisions they have made.
This means that we have a 100% chance of this happening to us.
The bad news is that none of us are guaranteed another day to live and to those who are waiting to choose to follow Jesus, procrastination just may catch up with them.
The good news is that right now, today, the opportunity exists for those who have not yet done so, to choose to change your direction in life and let Jesus come in.
