I just turned 50, and I didn't think it would bother me, but it has. Suddenly, I've realized I'm getting older, and I wonder if I'm headed in the right direction. I haven't paid much attention to God, but is it too late to change that?
I’m thankful you’re thinking about your life and where you’re headed, because this is one of the most important questions you’ll ever ask. Tragically, many people never ask it until it’s too late and their lives are over. The Psalmist prayed, “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).
No, it isn’t too late for you to turn to God and discover His plan for the rest of your life — and I strongly encourage you to do so. You may have forgotten God — but God hasn’t forgotten you, because He loves you and wants to help you discover the joy of knowing Him. The only life worth living is the life that puts God at its center instead of self. And this can happen, because God loves us and wants us to walk with Him every day.
How do I know this? I know it because God sent His Son into the world to bring us back to Himself. You see, only one thing separates us from God, and that is our sin. No matter who we are or how good or bad we’ve been, we are all sinners, and we are all separated from God. But Jesus Christ came to erase our sin and guilt, and reconcile us to God.
Turn to Christ and commit your life to Him today. You will never regret it, because He alone gives us hope — both for tomorrow, and for eternity.
