S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Corinthians 6:26
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
St. Paul was urgent in his proclamation to the Church at Corinth that “NOW” is God’s season of favor and “NOW” salvation is offered to You. This proclamation, of course, was extended then and “NOW” to every person who hears the “Good News” the world over.
If you’re like me, it’s easier to put off until tomorrow what should be done today. Each one of my boys, during their growing up years, had a “Push Back” for any directive I gave them for TODAY. There were always reasons why they had to “Put It Off.” We’d go back and forth and then I’d give them that “Look” and say … “Do It NOW!” Of course it would get done, quick. The Lord doesn’t stand over our heads with a stick when He says, “My FAVOR and My SALVATION is for you, NOW!” No! Jesus is giving all of us the greatest offer ever made. But His encouragement is, receive it “NOW!” Don’t put it off. There’s no giant stick in His hand, but evidently there is an expiration date on the offer. Why? The answer is, no one knows what will happen to them, even 60 seconds from right now. This is one offer from our Lord that none of us should delay! Favor is ours! Salvation is ours! These are gifts from The Almighty, but don’t put it off! Please receive it … “NOW!” Only YOU can make that call.
Thank You this AM that Your offer of Salvation and Favor has come to me, down through the centuries, until right NOW! And I’m happy to receive them both! You won’t see me delaying my decision. I receive it “NOW!” Amen
