I can’t tell you how many times I have heard people say they are waiting for the perfect day to start serving Jesus. Many want to first get an education, a wife, build a house, get a job, start a business, sell their business, retire from their job, divorce their husband, sell the house, move churches and change cities. The excuses never end. There is no such thing as a perfect time to serve Jesus. The perfect time is right now where you are, in that very situation. Take your eyes from the things around you and look to God so He can show you the opportunities to serve Him today.
At the end of life you will discover that you have run out of time and wish you had done more meaningful things in life. You will not be thinking about your favourite beer, sweetest wine or holiday destination. There is no perfect time to do the things you believe in your heart. Simply seize the moment and do the things God has given you to do today. Remember, every opportunity must be seized in the lifetime of that opportunity. Today is the day of salvation do not procrastinate. Get serving Jesus today.
SCRIPTURE READING: 2 CORINTHIANS 6:1-2
As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it. 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.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, I choose to take my eyes off the things around me and focus on you. I simply seize the moment to serve you now and do the things that you require of me. The perfect time is now in Jesus’ name. Amen
