The Walk to Heaven

CS - Counsels on Stewardship (1940) Chapter 20—Before It Is Too Late

It will not be long before probation will close. If you do not now serve the Lord with fidelity, how will you meet the record of your unfaithful dealing? Not long hence, a call will be made for a settlement of accounts, and you will be asked, “How much owest thou unto my Lord?” If you have refused to deal honestly with God, I beseech you to think of your deficiency, and if possible to make restitution. If this cannot be done, in humble penitence pray that God for Christ’s sake will pardon your great debt. Begin now to act like Christians. Make no excuse for failing to give the Lord His own. Now, while mercy’s sweet voice is still heard, while it is not yet too late for wrongs to be righted, while it is called today, if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.—The Review and Herald Supplement, December 1, 1896. {CS 99.4}

God is going over the records in the Most Holy Place of the Heavenly Sanctuary. The close of probation is coming soon, even at the door. The close may not be the same for everyone, as tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Probation can even close for some while they still live. So, today is the day to make the wrongs right to deal with God faithfully. Do what you can and pray for forgiveness. Harden not your heart while you have today. Make the most of the privilege God has given you and everyone else to be a co laborer with Him in the plan of salvation. Make no excuse to help bless others, and in turn, receive the blessing yourself.

Our kind and gracious Father,

We thank You so much for blessing us as co laborers with You in the plan of salvation. We thank You for showing us the way we can be one with You and Your people as we proclaim the everlasting gospel that saves. Help us not to make excuses in doing our part of returning Your portion into Your treasury. We pray that You will bless the work that brings Your truth to the world. If any are lacking, help us help them come to the light and truth that saves. Help us to right our wrongs and help us to do better. We pray we can help hasten Your second coming and that we are among Your saints taken up in the clouds. This we pray, in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
