Great Things Take Time.

No! Don’t jump the process. It took Jesus thirty years to prepare for a three and half year long ministry and He happens to be the most fulfilled man that ever lived.

Life consists of times and seasons which no one is above. Great men you see and want to be like did not just get there overnight, no matter their sphere of influence. You know the shocker, they look up to some greater persons too. This simply tells you that there are steps, processes and principles to be followed in order to get to the top of the ladder.
With that being understood, it might be tempting to want to postpone the process, feeling like you have all the time to grow and make impact.

I remember during my college days, going back to school after each semester break had to be well calculated. Leaving Lagos to Benin-City before noon was compulsory and anything otherwise was tantamount to a cancelled trip. This was a rule for me as arriving Benin-City late was usually unsafe especially since I lived off campus. This rule also made me arrive school without tensions, to a warm welcome, and enough time to relate with friends around.

You sure do not want to leave your comfort zone too late to receive a warm welcome at heaven’s gate.
During evangelism one day, I told a young man that I cannot afford to be without a crown in heaven and he said he had never thought of that; he was simply being a good Christian, no soul winning, no impact. I also realize that some people are thinking of repenting and seeking God’s mercy on their deathbeds; what if there is no deathbed?

Great things take time… start now! The first step to true greatness is salvation and the best time to be saved is NOW!
“For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation”. 2 Corinthians 6:2 NKJV

If you want to finish early, strong and well, start NOW!

Say this prayer of salvation to be saved. “Lord Jesus, I thank you for your death on the cross of Calvary. I believe in your death, burial, and resurrection that catered for my sins. Thank you for your resurrection which gives me an assurance of salvation. I ask that you come into my life and make me your child. Help me also to retain this salvation.” Amen
Read Romans 10:9-10.
