2 Corinthians 6:2


2 Corinthians 6:2 For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.


Eternal God, time is of the essence…especially in this fast-paced society in which I live.  When I fail to plan appropriately I miss out on a lot of things.  That’s what makes your plan of salvation so amazing.  In your great wisdom and power, you set in place every person, place and thing to bring about the salvation that has helped all people.  When the time was fully right, you sent your Son to die for me (Galatians 4:4-5)!  When the time was fully right, you called my parents, pastors and teachers to give me your Rich Treasure, your Word.   Help me to make the most of my time in this life to worship you in all I do. Keep me from putting off using my time to grow in the knowledge of your Word.  Teach me to seize TODAY and its opportunities to share your gracious favor and encourage others with words of kindness and hope.  Thank you for today, another day of your grace!  Amen.
