Today Is the Day to DO SOMETHING
2 CORINTHIANS 6:2—For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.
Dale Carnegie said, "One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon—instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today."
When Paul said, "today is the day of salvation," his words were not addressed to the lost. He was writing to believers ("fellow workers or God’s partners" he called them in verse 1), reminding them of their mission, of the price Jesus had paid for their sins, of the new life that was theirs in Christ.
He urged them not to wait a moment longer to begin living life to the fullest. "Be reconciled to God," he said to his fellow workers. "The right time is now. Today is the day of salvation."
The same can be said to you and me. Stop waiting for your "life" to begin, for everything to fall into place. Your life is now. Today is the day of God's favor. Today is the day that God's wants to bless you.
Today is the day that God wants to use you to help bring the lost into His family.
Quit dreaming of a day you’ll have a magical rose garden. Roses are blooming outside your window right now, DO SOMETHING about it begin to enjoy them!
