The Urgent “Now!”

“I’ll give this some thought.” “I can’t deal with this at the moment, I’m so busy!” “I’ll unwind a little bit tomorrow and consider this.” “Next week, I’ll start changing.” “That message was really challenging. I need to make some adjustments.” “I’ll take care of this first and then I’ll devote some time to that.” These and may other such intentions steal moments, hours, days, months, years, etc. that could be used to develop a priceless relationship with Jesus. Somehow, we just don’t get around to it or perhaps, in some cases, we give a little time and think we have been quite Spiritual. If we neglected good friends or our families like that, wouldn’t they be hurt? Does it ever occur to us that we hurt Jesus by neglecting Him? Satan is a master of misdirection. If he can persuade us to postpone action to a more convenient time, we’ll have lost a wonderful opportunity to know Jesus in a marvelous, rich, personal way. Life is replete with episodes of people suddenly running out of “tomorrows.” If we are going to come to know Jesus, first in salvation, and then in a wonderful daily walk, doing it “now” is urgent. We are not guaranteed one additional breath! Tomorrow might be too late! We know that, intellectually, but the enemy so manipulates our emotions that we “feel” that that is not likely to happen to us. It probably won’t but what about those who “felt” that way but died? James, in Chapter 4, Verse14, writing under inspiration cautions, “Wheras ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” Seize the moment! Selah! Opportunities not used in “time” can never be reclaimed in eternity!   Ron
