Comedian George Carlin dead at age 71

I saw in the headlines that another famous person has passed away - comedian George Carlin.
I remember hearing a few minutes of this man's act on television years ago. I remember that he made fun of Christ, and of all who believe in Him. Now, George Carlin believes in Christ, and he believes every word of the Bible. Now, George Carlin believes that Jesus died for our sins. The only problem is that it's too late for him.
By the testimony of his own lips, I have to believe that George Carlin never accepted Christ as Saviour. Oh how he wishes he would have!
Now, he will spend eternity thinking back on the times he ridiculed believers and made fun of God. Now, he will look back at all the opportunities he had to accept Christ and long for another chance, but that chance won't come for George Carlin. It's too late for him.
Let's not think for a moment that God is happy that George Carlin is in Hell. The Bible says that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
The Son of man came to seek and to save George Carlin. For God so loved George Carlin, that He gave His only begotten Son so that George Carlin could be saved if only he had believed. God's grace was sufficient to save him, and God's mercy was available to forgive him, if only he had believed and accepted Jesus.
Let's remember that God loved George Carlin just as much as he loves us. Let's remember that God's heart is grieved every time someone dies without Christ.
Should not our hearts be grieved as well? George Carlin won't get another chance, but what about that person that was rude when you tried to witness to them? What about that person that threw down the tract and laughed at you? What about that person that slammed the door? If they are still breathing, they have another chance. Will you go back, or will you give up? It's clear that God would have us go back. God is not willing that any should perish. They are the reason that Jesus laid down His life.
