Don’t miss your chance by Pastor W.F Kumuyi





KEY VERSE: “And Moses said unto Hobab… [his] father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel” (NUMBERS 10:29).

     A small dog hit by a car was lying by the side of the road. A doctor who drove by noticed that the dog was still alive, picked it up and took it home. On examination, he found that the dog suffered only minor cuts and abrasions but was in shock. No sooner had he revived and cleaned him up that the dog suddenly jumped from his arms and scampered off. “What an ungrateful little dog,” he said to himself. He thought no more about the incident until the next evening when he heard a scratching at the door. When he opened it, there was the little dog he had treated with another hurt dog!

     The little dog seem to be of the same thought with Moses when he passionately invited Hobab, his father-in-law to go all the way with them to the Promised Land. Apparently, Hobab, had kept company with the Israelites for quite some time, travelling with them through many places. Moses wanted him to enter their rest in Canaan with them. However, Hobab was more persuaded to go back to his place.

     Hobab’s reluctance did not discourage Moses from pressing further either. For believers in Christ, if we have truly tasted the goodness and grace of God and are conscious of the blessed hope ahead, the love for our fellow travellers in life should move us to compel them to come with us. They may put up some resistance, but we should not give up on them to bring them to the Saviour.

     For the unconverted, some of whom are familiar with church culture, there is need to reconsider the matter. If this is your state, we entreat you to consider the Saviour’s offer more prudently and penitently seek God through faith in Christ. Forgiveness, grace, peace of mind, purity, purpose, victory and eternal life await you. Delay no longer.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If heaven is your destination, invite others.
