Almost Persuaded

"Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian" (Ac 26:28), but sadly it isn't recorded that this almost persuaded king ever believed the Gospel.

Are you too one of the almost persuaded?  What if you should be also one of the many almost persuaded who die unsaved?  That is unimaginable tragedy, to be within a step of heaven, yet to enter instead, first hell, and then the eternal torment of the lake of fire (Rev 20).

To escape hell and enter heaven (1) confess that you are a sinner without a particle of righteousness, (2) believe that Christ died for your sins, and (3) believe that that faith brings you God's pardon and gift of eternal life, as it is written, "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (Jn 3:36).
