Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles compared the physiological and psychological symptoms of twenty people who quit smoking cold turkey and twenty who cut back slowly. They found that withdrawal symptoms decreased more sharply for those who quit smoking suddenly. Many plan one day to quit but just don’t get around to it. Likewise, many, realizing that we are all going to stand before God someday, plan to make their peace with God. The Bible urges us, “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.” Sadly, many, thinking they will one day act, don’t get around to it until too late. Only 23% of people who turn their lives over to Christ do so after the age of 21. Those who are older need to give this some thought. It may be later than we think.
