Almost Persuaded

In the Peanuts cartoon the team statistician brings Charlie Brown, the manager, his report.

"'I've compiled the statistics on our baseball team for last season,' Linus says. 'In twelve games we almost scored a run and in nine games the other team almost didn't score before the first out. In right field, Lucy almost caught three balls and once almost made the right play.

"'We led the league,' he concludes, 'in almosts.'"

In Paul's day King Agrippa was also an almost … he was almost persuaded to become a Christian. We hope that he did while he had the opportunity. However, if he didn't, he is lost forever because there is no indication anywhere in God's Word that anybody is given a second chance after death to receive Jesus as their Saviour
Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.” (Acts 26:28, NKJV)
