In A Matter Of Seconds

Words Of Knowledge:
It take months to find a customer but only seconds to lose one.

Bearing:
"To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that faded not away, reserved in heaven for you"
                          I Peter 1:4

It took years not even months to make a disciple out of Judas, but only a few seconds of greed and covetousness to lose him.
It takes months of painstaking labours to build a house but making a rubble out of it is a matter of hours. If the bulldozer and the operator is in top form.
It may take years, even decades to build a relationship but all it take are moments of insincerity, stubbornness, underrating other parties and taking them for granted by utterances and actions too strange to be imagined, to make a "ounce upon a time" out of it.
I don't know of yours but for many,  it took  years of being preached to, invitations to church and special programmes, handing of tracts to read,  etc before they finally yield to The Master and Saviour. Some even several years.
I learnt of a European who prayed for his brother to be saved for decades.
Why then must we fritter away this precious faith just in a moment of selfish passion,  lust and self gratification? And to make matters worse, not knowing how to find our way back to The Master like Peter did, for mercy and restoration. As Peter found his way back to The Master after the 3 episodes of "Cockcrow At Dawn" so must we also return to The Almighty and be built up again. If need be to be rebuilt again. 
But why will some finally thrown in the towel and return to their fishing nets again like the disciples did, until Master Jesus waded in?
Two things:
1.Pride
2. Despair.

Pride
Feeling too proud to face the facts,  like the unfaithful servant,  who said "I cannot dig nor beg" in The Bible.
To dig into the matter and face facts and beg The Master and if need be tender apologies to any for any wrong doing, both to God and man, they are too proud and scared of. My tender charge to such is "humble thyself"

Despair
Others became too disappointed in themselves and felt that same goes for The Lord, Who of course is even more disappointed, and may not want to see their face again.
Nope.
True,  The Lord may be disappointed more than you are,  yet He loves you so much than to let go of you just like that. I encourage you to return to Him,  and throw yourself down at His holy feet.
It took and cost Him His sweat and blood to save and redeem you. He can't just give up on you,  just like that.
Others who claim to be 'realists' may preach and teach something like "it is over" Don't believe them. Return to your Maker. He is waiting for you.
Same way I encourage all who felt they are too bad for The Master to ever get time for them again. Jesus get time for you. So much time to spare for you. It does not matter how far you have gone in sin, Jesus still get your time and wants to save you. It was even because of men like you that He came.
And He is ready to wipe the slate of your past clean. And I mean it in all honesty and sincerity, He is ready to. You too be ready to come even today, to Him.
