Forgiveness......When its too late
Have you noticed how much sorrow and need for forgiveness public figures ask for on the day they are caught doing something they should not have been doing? But the day before they were caught, they could have not cared less about expressions of sorrow and asking for forgiveness for what they were doing. But it seems to work to be contrite on the 1st day of public awareness and judgment.
BUT DON’T THINK THIS WILL WORK WITH GOD.
The Bible talks about death as something that comes like a thief in the night. The state of your soul becomes fixed at the moment of death. It is too late to be sorrowful on judgment day if you were not at the instant before death. You must be in the state of grace at death or your future for eternity will not be good.
Now, and I mean now, is the time to ask God for forgiveness, use the Sacrament of Confession, and do God’s word every second of your life. Your eternity will hopefully be more pleasant.
