When you think about the financial commitment, time and effort necessary for household purchases, although important, one must ask how much time do we spend when it comes to the financial commitment, time and effort related to our salvation and Church? Is God waiting for our acceptance or rejection? Have we gone through a laborious process to prepare for Judgment Day? At least with a home, HDTV, or refrigerator, their is a defined time but with our salvation, it is what we must prepare for on a daily basis!
2 Thessalonians 1:11-12
11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
