U.O.H. (UNIVERSITY OF HELL)

Ah, decisions!  We all have to make them every day. 

Three demons were graduating from the University of Hell.  At graduation, they were each asked a question by the devil: “What is your strategy to deceive mankind?” 

The first demon said, “I’m going to deceive mankind by telling them there is no God.”  Satan said, “You know we’ve tried that, but they all seem to think there is a God somewhere.” 

The second demon said, “I’m going to deceive mankind by telling them there is no heaven or hell.”  Satan said, “Most people think there is a heaven or hell somewhere.” 

The third demon said, “Here’s what I’m going to tell them: you don’t have to be in a hurry, no hurry.  You don’t have to be in a hurry to get saved.  You don’t have to be in a hurry to get your life right.  You don’t have to be in a hurry to correct your situation.  You don’t have to be in a hurry to obey God.  You don’t have to be in a hurry to do anything.”  And Satan said, “Congratulations, you have the prize for the winning strategy.” 

That’s exactly what’s happening today: nobody’s in a hurry; we think we will always have tomorrow.  Are you delaying a decision you know you need to make today?  Behold, now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2).

PRAYER FOR TODAY

If you are reading this today, you know you need to make a decision.  The time is short; as a matter of fact, none of us know just how long we have left on this earth.  Where you want to spend eternity is the biggest decision you will ever make, because forever is a long time.  Lord, You said, “I am the door, if anyone enters by Me, he will be saved.…” (John 10:9).  Lord, You are not one of many doors to the Father, but the only door.  May I place my eternal salvation on that.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

The decisions we make today will lead to our destination in the future.
