Church Is Finally Over

Whereas you know not what shall be
on the morrow. For what is your life?
It is even a vapor, that appeareth for
a little time, and then vanisheth away.
James 14:4

Church is finally over,
I'm headed for the door.
The sermon was inspiring,
Like hundreds were before.

The choir sang the anthem,
The best I've ever heard,
And all the people listening
Were blessed, and even stirred.

The invitation given
Was earnest, warm, and strong;
While all the congregation
Joined in the final song.

I almost was persuaded
To let the Savior in;
But church is finally over,
And I've turned away again.

Church is finally over,
I feel almost the same;
I guess I'll wait till next time
To call upon His name.

They say He's very patient,
Long- suffering and kind;
His arms are always open
And those who seek shall find.

I've heard the gospel story---
I know it very well:
How Jesus died to save me
From everlasting hell.

Yet I can't help but wonder
When my last chance will be,
And church is finally over
For all eternity.

My dear friend, one day church is going to be over for all eternity.
Jesus will gather up His beloved church to the splendors of heaven,
to the place He has prepared for them. There will be no more altar
calls, no more invitations, and no more chances for you to accept Him
as your Lord and Savior. I beg of you, don't delay! Give your life
to Jesus now, before the day comes when church will be over and it
will be too late! Eternity is a long, long time - too long to be wrong!
