Longsuffering

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  2 Peter 3:9 KJV

God sent His Son so that you and I would not perish, but that each of us would have life. Who is God’s Son but Jesus the Christ. He is God’s only begotten Son.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV

Don’t think that this age of waiting in grace is due to the absence or neglect of God. His “clock is running” and the time of the end and the ensuing judgement is coming.

It’s because of His mercy and grace that He waits until the last of the harvest of souls comes in.

Don’t keep Him waiting on you. You just might wait too long and find His offer of salvation withdrawn.

Nothing could be worse.
