In 1874 Elisha Gray did something that no one else had ever done. He unveiled a machine that transmitted musical notes over a telegraph wire. The audience was fascinated with the sounds. Proudly he said, “If music, why not words?”
Immediately the New York Times predicted a “Talking Machine,” and people expressed a great interest in wanting one.
Gray did nothing with his “machine” for two months. One day he decided to go to the patent office with a drawing. After presenting it to one of the officials he learned that Alexander Graham Bell had presented an identical sketch two hours earlier.
Gray did not fail. He hesitated.
Salvation is God’s free gift to everyone who accepts Christ. But like Gray, many put off making a decision about becoming a Christian until it is too late. Everyone seems to believe that there will always be another tomorrow because there was a yesterday.
Prayer: We pray, Father, for the ones we know who need to accept Christ as Savior today! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: 2 Corinthians 6:1-2 Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
