Will there ever be a better opportunity? - D.L. Moody

D.L. Moody preached Christ's redemption as though it was an opportunity that passes by every man. It is the height of madness to present sure promise of God's free grace as an opportunity. This is a classic example of "opportunity redemption" preaching:

"My friend, is it not the height of madness to put off salvation so long? Undoubtedly I am speaking to some who will be in eternity a week from now. In a large audience like this, during the next week death will surely come and snatch some away; it may be the speaker, or it may be someone who is listening. Why put off the question another day? Why say to the Lord Jesus again tonight, “Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for Thee?” Why not let him come in tonight? Why not open your heart, and say, “King of Glory, come in?” Will there ever be a better opportunity? Did not you promise ten, fifteen, twenty, thirty years ago that you would serve God? Some of you said you would do it when you got married and settled down; some of you said you would serve Him when you were your own master. Have you attended to it?" -D.L. Moody

"There is a man in the middle of life. Is this not the best time for him to seek the kingdom of God! Will he ever have a better opportunity? Will Christ ever be more willing to save than now?" -D.L. Moody

"That was his seeking opportunity, his day. My friends, this is your day now. I believe that every man has his day. You have it just now; why not call upon Him just now? Say, as the poor thief did, “Lord remember me.” That was his golden opportunity, and the Lord heard and answered and saved him." - D.L. Moody
