The Only Time We Ever Have

"Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."1

In his sermon, "Obedience," Warren Lamb said, "I used to have problems getting my son to clean his room. I would insist that he, 'Do it now,' and he would always agree to do so, but then he wouldn't follow through—at least, not right away.

"After high school he joined the Marine Corps, which is where he is now [or was at time of writing]. When he and I were on the plane together coming home for his leave after Boot Camp, he said to me, 'My life makes sense now, Dad. Everything you said and did when I was growing up now makes sense. I really, really understand.'

"Oh yeah, Dad," he added. "I learned what 'now' means."2

For all of us, the only time we ever have is now.

If God is urging you to make amends with a friend or loved one, do it now. If there is a job or responsibility you have been putting off, do it now. If God is calling you to accept his gift of salvation, remember NOW is the day of salvation. Be sure to do this today. For help go to: to read, "How to Be Sure You're a real Christian Without Having to Be Religious."

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank You for your Word that reminds me that the day of salvation is now—today. Please help me to do today what is the most important thing in my life, and especially to make sure my life is right with You. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name, amen."

1. 2 Corinthians 6:2 (NKJV).
2. Warren Lamb,
