Isa. 55:6 “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.”
Seek the Lord “while He may be found” – for nobody knows when will the door be shut. People may think they’ll look into Jesus later, but nobody can guarantee that there is a “later”.
When the Lord Jesus died on the cross, there was two thieves that died on either side of Him. Both mocked Him at the start of the crucifixion – yet one turned and believed in Him and found eternal life right at the very end. The other remained in his unbelief and hardness of heart and found what could be described as eternal death. I have always remembered and liked what Dr Martyn Lloyd Jones said concerning this:
“One thief was saved so that there would always be hope. But only one so that there would not be presumption.”
What does he mean by that? If you have a friend or loved ones who is not saved, you can take hope from the one thief that repented at the final hour that salvation is available right up until the last breath. But a man should never presume that all will be saved and he can just leave it until the end and then make peace with the Lord in the after-life. This is what the other thief did, and he was doomed. So even if you feel so unworthy, make haste to come back to the Lord.
