said in Acts 26:27-28 "King Agrippa, believest thou the
prophets? I know that thou believest.
Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a
Christian." Paul had preached to the king with

was as far as it went.
hymn we often sing says, "Almost cannot avail, almost is but to
fail." To be almost persuaded is to be almost saved; to
be almost saved is to be COMPLETELY LOST. There will be no
consolation at the day of judgment when the records show that the
person being judged was once almost persuaded to take his stand

you BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the son of God, you should
REPENT of your sins, CONFESS your faith in Christ, and be
BAPTIZED [immersed in water] for the remission of your sins, Mark
16:15-16; Acts 2:38, 41, 47; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 8:35-39, 22:16;
Romans 6:3-4; Galatians 3:26-27; Hebrews 5:8-9. We hope you will be
persuaded to OBEY God's simple plan of salvation so that you
can become a Christian, a member of the Lord's church. "Knowing
therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;" II
Corinthians 5:11. Dear reader, may we assist you in your gospel
