RE Verse Reading–Genesis 24:34-67 (day four)
Ten days didn’t seem too long…but what if they were ten days late? One day does not seem much; but one day more may be one day too late, and one day too late may be too late forever! Obedience is doing the right thing, at the right time, with the right heart attitude! Even one second on the clock could mean missing Christ forever…either for you or for someone else. Satan plays the same game over and over. He doesn’t oppose religion openly, but ‘everything in its proper place’…”this is just not the time for it; wait a little longer…say, ten days!”
Satan desires that no one come to Christ, but if he cannot keep us from Christ, he wants to have us just a little longer. Not only can he get more service out of our lives, but he can often pile on shameful baggage that can cripple our service to God. He seeks to sow tares into our wheat field!
