Don’t Blow Your Chance!

2 Corinthians 6:2 – “Behold, now is “THE ACCEPTABLE TIME,” behold, now is “THE DAY OF SALVATION”…

As a serious trophy hunter, I have a rule – take the FIRST good shot you get on a trophy buck because you never know if you’ll get another chance. Trophy bucks have a way of disappearing, often suddenly and unexpectantly. You’re on a countdown and you don’t know much time you have. And when your time runs out, you may have blown your chance at that trophy forever.

I was reminded of this trophy hunting principle recently when I learned that a friend I hadn’t seen in many years had died suddenly. My friend was very wealthy. He had everything this world could offer – business success, power, huge landholdings, multiple homes, beautiful wife – he had it all…except fulfilment. You see, he was spiritually bankrupt. He did not know his Creator and Savior, the one thing that brings true success. Sadly, I knew he had had his chance, that there had been a time when the opportunity to “pull the trigger on life’s greatest trophy,” a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, was before him and he hesitated…then the moment was gone. I do not know if God in His grace ever gave him that chance again. But in thinking about this, I was reminded of God’s Word to us in 2 Corinthians 6:2, “…at the Acceptable Time, I listened to you, and on the Day of Salvation, I helped you. Behold, NOW is the Acceptable Time, behold NOW is The Day of Salvation.” When life’s greatest trophy is before you, take the shot…NOW!
