You ALMOST Got Me 

MAY 22 & 23, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Acts 26:28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    Picture with me if you will a man working out in the yard or maybe on something in the garage. He has almost finished with his project when his wife yells out, “are you done yet?” Now I know that her asking really does not change anything, but for some reason it seems to cause a big disturbance in his train of thought on what he is doing. He yells back, “I’ll be done in a few minutes.” “When?” she asks. “In just a minute,” he replies. Then the magic words that makes him want to hurry and finish. “Well dinner is almost ready.” Almost ready! Not quite ready, but close. This means in just a little bit it will be completely ready and he definitely wants to be there. The word “almost” seems to give him, not much, but at least some time.

    King Agrippa said to Paul, “thou ALMOST persuadest me…” Almost. He is not completely persuaded, but close. What kept the king from being persuaded completely? Could Paul possibly have said anymore? I doubt it. Could the Holy Spirit have moved any more in the Kings heart? Probably not. Almost is close, but not close enough. King Agrippa may have thought to himself; I have a little more time.

    Almost is where most people live today. I am almost ready to be saved. Almost ready to give up this lifestyle. Almost ready to turn my life over to Christ. ALMOST…but not quite, because I think I may have just a little more time. It has been said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. People almost made it, almost got saved… almost!

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Almost is a great word for salvation. However, you must divide it up for it to work. You see ALL is the MOST you can give to the Lord. That is just what He wants. If you give him your ALL, He will make the MOST of your life.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
