"Before It Is Too Late"


Jeremiah 8:20) “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.”

Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, was brought to tears by the sinfulness of his people. They had turned their back on God; therefore, God had given them over to their covetous desires. Their prophets and their priest deal falsely with the people saying “Peace, peace when there is no peace.” They commit abominations and idol worship. They are not sorry or ashamed of their actions. Jeremiah’s heart is broken for he sees no end to the sorrow because of the rebellion against God.

When we compare Jeremiah’s day to the day we are living, we should be the ones weeping as we see another summer go by and realize there are countless souls, some of which are our loved ones and acquaintances, that are unconcerned and do not even realize the lateness of the hour and the state of their soul. Truly “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” This is a sad state of affairs to those who will spend eternity in Hell!

But it does not have to be this way. Paul said if we would be “Redeeming the time because the days are evil.” (Eph. 5:16). The word redeem means to buy back or take back. Church, we need to take the time we have right now to see souls saved before it is too late. Summer is passed, but the harvest is still out there. All God needs is laborers, what God needs is you!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Jeff
