Who Are You Burning Your Candle For?

Adrian Rogers

“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.” – Romans 8:13

We preachers are fond of saying, “Get right with God. You may die!” It is far better to say, “Get right with God. You may live!” The greatest joy in life is living for Jesus. Why waste more time? There is a life to live.

Friend, the best thing that you can say about a life lived without Christ is that it is a wasted life. Billy Sunday, a revival preacher from the 1920s, said that the deathbed repentance is “burning the candle of life for the devil, and then blowing the smoke in God’s face.”

If you are not saved, it’s not too late for you to be saved. If you want to be saved—wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you’ve done, Jesus wants to save you. Repent and believe and you will be saved
