"He is not saved."
"He is not saved yet."
The first is a statement of fact; the second is a statement of faith. Words matter. If we truly believe God can intervene to change history, then we ought to use the word “yet” even when describing things that seem hopeless today.
“He is not saved yet."
“The situation is not any better (yet!)."
"I don’t have a job yet."
"My son has not come back to the Lord yet."
Hang on to that little word “yet.” It’s a great word as we come to the beginning of a new year.
