Come on now, I’ll admit it if you will. We’re going to go on a diet next Monday. We’ll quit smoking after we get through this current crisis. We’ll start exercising after the holidays. We’ll start going to church when the weather gets better after winter – this excuse is a bummer if you live in a climate where you don’t get bad weather in the winter.
Well, all the excuses fly out the proverbial window tomorrow. It’s a Monday, it’s after the holidays and the start of a new year, and it looks as if winter has been called off here in the north east/mid-Atlantic area. Here’s the thing. All that other stuff is nothing more than a way to procrastinate. Today is always the best day. Today is the best day to start exercising, give up our vices, change the way we eat, start being nice to others, read the Bible, pray, give your life to the Lord, and _____________(feel free to add your own here.)
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. ~ 2 Corinthians 6:2 (NLT)
The funny thing is just a few of you will be reading this on New Year’s Day or within a day or two of it. Many of you will find it in a search for “Today is the Best Day” at different times of the year.
Today IS the best day because it’s the only day we’re guaranteed. It IS the day the Lord has made. It IS the day to love your neighbor. And it CAN BE the day of salvation for those who are living without Christ, should you be the one.
Today is the best day!
