When "Now" Has Passed
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2016
Posted by: Crossroads Baptist Church | more..
(My first "Bible Blogger" blog and I just refound it. I hope you enjoy.)

WHEN “NOW” HAS PASSED

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 2 Corinthians 6:2

Recently, our pastor finished a sermon series on “Super-Sizing Your Faith.” As an illustration, he had been using three McDonalds cups sized from small to large. The series finished and the cups had served their purpose for the preacher. Now, it was my turn! What devious plan did I have for three cups you may ask? I had no plan for three cups because two of them would be immediately heading for the trash. However, there was one cup in particular that had caught my attention. It was the very special “Monopoly” cup. For anyone who may have lived on the moon for the last decade: once a year, McDonalds has a special game with lots of possible prizes. These prizes range from extra food to the ever-elusive one million dollar prize. If you have the right game piece, you win the prize. This very special cup was a monopoly cup. On top of this, the labels had not been peeled. Week after week, I had noticed the unpeeled game pieces. Finally, my chance had come! Would I find the extremely rare “Boardwalk?” I peeled them back one by one. The first was some property that wasn't that special. The second piece was different. Did I find Boardwalk? No, I found something better. The game piece was an instant winner for a medium fry! If you are not familiar with these fries, they are basically equivalent to “manna” from the Old Testament. What delight! My mouth was already beginning to water over the salty, calorie-filled treat I would soon enjoy at no cost. But wait… What is that on the bottom? NOOOOOOO!!!! It’s an expiration date from two weeks ago! My day dream had been crushed and my hopes shattered on the rocks of expired time.

Pretty dramatic right? The point I am making is that there is an expiration date on many opportunities we find in life. I am 27 years old. I will not be the youngest man to run a marathon. Likely, with my fondness for junk food, I may never run a marathon. But, I did not miss something infinitely better. I am so glad that I did not miss my opportunity to call on Christ and trust in Him for my eternal salvation. Friend, the verse above says that “Now is the day of salvation.” God loves you. Jesus died for you. He gave Himself on a cruel cross to suffer the punishment that belongs to you and me. He was our Substitute. Follow Christ’s call to come to Him. He is the only way of salvation. Make today your “now” and do not let it pass. If you have any questions on how you can know the Lord Jesus Christ please do not hesitate to contact us.
