Oughts. [ Hebrews 3 v 8 ]

Derek Tidball in his book on Leviticus writes of four important,'oughts',
of the Christian life. First,Christians ought to be in haste to obey God's will.
I remember a manager pulling me up, because he thought I was not doing something I should, he said, ''do it'' .There is an old fashion word which
is procrastination, it means putting old, to drag one's feet, playing a waiting game, putting of till tomorrow what should be done today. You get the idea, it is often applied to people putting of deciding for Christ, as the old hymn puts it, 'some more convenient day'. When it comes to salvation we cannot play around with the instant need of trusting Jesus now.Because of the uncertainty of life, when Gods speaks to our hearts it is vital that we do not dither, there is to much at stake. As Christians we should realise the importance of not putting of till another day what God wants us to do now.
When Jesus came to Peter and Andrew mending their fishing nets, He said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men'. They immediately
left their nets and followed Him.

Dear God help me to be quick to do your will in Jesus name Amen.
