Interesting. Cool video. I experienced this last night as I apologized to my wife before bed for something, and we both felt peace.
I saw my grandpa who had lived the life of an alcoholic accept Christ on his deathbed. He was suffering from liver failure, his face was yellow from jaundice, and he was clearly in pain.
The priest came in, read him his last rites, and asked if he believed that Jesus was the Christ, the son of the living God. My grandpa, who never cared much for religion or attending mass with my grandma, had tears in his eyes and said, “Yes, yes I do.” The priest asked him if he would receive Jesus as his savior. My grandpa nodded again and said, “Yes, yes I do.” I wasn’t even a Christ-follower at the time, but I knew that was powerful.
I’m sure that there are critics of these types of conversions, and I have no way to really know my grandpa’s heart, but for all my money, I’m expecting to see him in heaven.
You’re right; it’s never too late. And perhaps that’s what’s so powerful about this song – that the alternative is our hearts turn cold towards God and each other. In this song, I hear the words of someone who is tormented with unforgiveness. If we don’t forgive, then we won’t be free.
