A question we need to ask ourselves from time to time is, “How do I spend the time God has given me?” “Right now” is something each one living on the earth has in common and while multitudes of Many are being born into this world “right now,” many are also entering into eternity “right now.” Many of the souls leaving their earthly body wish – “right now” – they had a few more minutes to do things they wish they had not left undone.
“Right Now” Is All We Have!
Right now is the most important time for each one of us because it is all we have! We are not promised next year, next month, next week, or even tomorrow. Right now is important because it is when we can make the “choice” to obey, to encourage a brother or sister, to take the first step in living a life for Christ… to find one’s life in losing it (Matthew 16:25).
What Is Your Life?James says that our lives are as a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away (James 4:14). Our life, like the morning fog, vanishes in the heat of the sun. A day in our earthly life is a valuable and precious gift because it is soon over.
Don’t be deceived all we have is “Right Now” Sin may deceive us by telling us, “You’ve got time”. The writer of the book of Hebrews tells us to “exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin (Hebrews 3:13 – ESV).” James states, “Come now you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow” (James 4:12-13). The saying, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions” means that intending to take care of important duties at a future time is the road to eternal ruin.
Though we plan to do something good (study the Bible, obey the gospel, teach the lost, call a discouraged brother or sister, visit the sick, minister to the needy) our hectic schedules crowd out our good intentions. We may forget that there will not always be a “tomorrow”.
So let us start living for “Right Now”
I can’t wait to see you and don’t forget live for RIGHT NOW
