You’re Calling From Where?

A while back a young lady from Alabama had been visiting her parents and was heading back home to her husband. The further she traveled the rougher the weather became. Soon it started to hail. She had never driven in hail before so she called her husband on the cell phone to find out what to do. Now, you already know the circumstances, so it won't be as shocking to you as it was to her husband when he answered the phone and his wife said from the other end: "I'm in hail, what should I do?" (Remember, you can't see spelling over a phone line.)

I wonder what his reaction was, thinking she was in hell. Did he say one of the following?

"Well, it sure is a good connection!"

"Is this a collect call?"

"Who's holding the phone?'

"I tried to warn you."

The only real appropriate answer would be: "Nothing, it's too late now." No bargaining with the devil...no pleading with God. When you are in hell the time has passed to do anything about it. (Heb. 9:27, Matt. 7:22-23). There will be no unrepentant people in hell, no atheists or agnostics. (Phil. 2:10-11).

The only good news is that if you are still reading this, there is still time for you to do something about it. As long as there is life, there is hope. You can escape hell, but you must do it now! (Rom. 6:23). You need to...

BELIEVE. (Heb. 11:6; Acts 8:37)
REPENT. (Luke 13:3,5; Acts 2:38)
CONFESS. (Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 8:37)
BE BAPTIZED. (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 2:38; Rom. 6:1-4)

I don't care how strong the signal is in hell; you can't pick up a cell phone and call a loved one and say, "I'm in hell. What should I do?" So, you better take care of this NOW!

For His Cause,
