What reasons for urgency in becoming a Christian?

Besides the return of Christ and the possibility of death, both of which will seal our eternal destiny before the judgment of God, what reasons would you give someone to obey the Lord as soon as possible?

I thought of a couple close to home: one, our parents (and other relatives, uncles and aunts, etc.) are getting older, and if we want to reach them before they’re gone, we must obey ourselves; and, two, our children are growing up, so it’s urgent we obey and teach them the Way as well.

I’m anxious to hear from you on this question.
