2 Korintus 6:2 Sebab Allah berfirman: "Pada waktu Aku berkenan, Aku akan mendengarkan engkau, dan pada hari Aku menyelamatkan, Aku akan menolong engkau." Sesungguhnya, waktu ini adalah waktu perkenanan itu; sesungguhnya, hari ini adalah hari penyelamatan itu.
How often in our lives have you and I put off something that we know would be good for us and yet somehow, we just never paid it enough attention? Somehow, we never got around to doing it.
It’s the story of our lives, is it not? Me? I find it easy – very easy in fact – to sit on my backside all day working, and not do one of the most important things I can do for my health: get up and move.
What is it in your life? What good thing have you been putting off over and over again because … well, you have some good excuse, hmm?
For a good many, the thing they keep on putting off is dealing with the sin in their lives; their anger, their addictions, their animosity, their … well, it’s a long list, choose your poison. But we rationalise things away. I’m just too busy to deal with it. I’ll get to it later.
So, with all love in Christ that I can muster, allow me to grab you today and give you a good shake:
2 Corinthians 6:2 God says, “I heard you at the right time, and I gave you help on the day of salvation.” I tell you that the “right time” is now. The “day of salvation” is now.
On that day when you cried out to God, He heard you, right? He helped you, He saved you, right? But since then, sin’s crept in, eating away at you. Sure, I’ll deal with it … one day.
Wake up! I tell you that the “right time” is now. The “day of salvation” is now. Don’t squander God’s grace.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
