This is what happens when you ignore the warning signs!

Bandage from Cancer Surgery

 

Yes…that is me with a huge bandage on the side of my face.  That bandage resulted from surgery to remove basal cell carcinoma back in May.  It was supposed to be a minor procedure that turned into a long incision requiring 20 stitches to close!  Hmmmm…if only I had not ignored the warning signs for so long it may have been a much less intrusive procedure.

It turns out the surgeon got it all and several months later he says I am still good!

This made me start thinking about life….

Remember the floods we had here earlier this year and the “Road Closed” signs everywhere?  Yet, some drivers ignored them.

Now even more recently hurricane Irene on the east coast?  Yet, again some persons ignored the warnings and some even paid for it with their life!

You know where I am going with this don’t you….

We have been privileged to receive all kinds of warnings about the dangers of sin in a book called the Bible.  For those of us who have entered into a covenant relationship with Jesus, we also have Holy Spirit to assist us on our journey and will sometimes ignore His promptings.

If you are in a relationship with Him, don’t ignore His promptings…rather “listen” for them.

If you are not in a relationship with Jesus, please don’t delay.  Basal Cell Carcinoma is potentially a killer…a good friend of mine died as a result of letting his go too long.  Please don’t wait about doing something with your spiritual life….there comes a time in life when it is too late.

If you wish to know more, just ask!

In His loving grip of truly amazing grace,

Dennis
