Now is the time for us to make a critical decision. Will we commit ourselves fully to the Lord or will we continue in any way to cling on to our worldly desires? Christians, please hear this message at this pivotal moment. We will all stand accountable before a holy God who has called us to stand at this time. What will you say when you are face to face with Jesus? Our cowardice will have no excuse. Our ignorance will have no amelioration. Our worldly desires will have no place. Choose this day whom you will serve. The clarion call raised in the heart of Times Square this past Sunday would surely have pleased our founding Pastor David Wilkerson. Give the glory to God today. Follow Jesus!

There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

He also spoke this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.’ ”

Luke 13:1-9
