Whenever I go somewhere by plane, I arriver at the airport quite early. When I went to Okinawa last week, I arrived at 11:15 for a 12:45 flight. There weren’t many people there, so I was able to check in and walk slowly to my gate.

When I returned to Fukuoka on Monday, I arrived at 10:00 for an 11:10 flight. When I entered the Okinawa airport, I was surprised. There were many, many people. I got in a long, long line. When I finally was able to check in, it was already 10:50. I walked as quickly as I could to the gate and was able to board the plane at the last moment. I do not like at-the-last-moment travel.

An at-the-last-moment Christian life is not good either. According to Second Corinthians 5:10, we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. The Christian who knows this will not wait until the last moment before they will appear before the judgment seat of Christ but will be cleansed daily by the Lord through prayer and the Word of God. There is this exhortation in First John 2:28: little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

An at-the-last-moment salvation is also not good. In Proverbs 27:1 it is written, Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth, so those of you who have not yet received Christ as your personal Savior, do not wait until the last moment before the second coming of Christ or your death. Believe in Christ as soon as possible.
Seek the LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6)

It is a terrible thing to miss your flight because you went to the airport at the last moment, but it is even terrible to not be able to go to heaven because you waited too long.
