“Almost won’t get you into heaven”

King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest. v.27: Then Agrippa said unto Paul, “Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.”
Acts 26 :27-28

My Dad used to tell me that almost never cuts it. Almost falls short of what is actually required or needed. King Agrippa listened to Paul testify and preach about the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. He had ample opportunity to accept Christ. He “almost” did the right thing. But spiritually, he was blinded from seeing the path to truth, righteousness and salvation, and instead remained in his lost state and condition.

I have talked to many people thru the years about the Lord Jesus Christ. Some believed, and some did not. It always comes down to a personal decision. You see my friends, nobody can decide if the Bible is true or if Jesus Christ is Who He says He IS, but YOU. If Paul could have decided FOR King Agrippa, the king would have believed. Sadly, we have no record of Agrippa ever coming to repentance and faith in Christ. He likely went into eternity with the word “almost” on his lips and mind. Don’t be an “almost kind of person” when it comes to YOUR personal decision concerning Jesus Christ. He is our ONLY hope!

  1. My wife’s father, a World War II Navy vet, used to say that ALMOST is only good with hand-grenades and then someone dies or is maimed. That’s the same truth with ALMOST being a Christian. Spiritually, you either are or you aren’t, there really is no “sitting on the fence” so to speak! Great thoughts Brothers!
