Procrastination is a thief of both time and eternity. Both famous and unknown authors have stated this profound truth in many ways.
We live either in memory or anticipation of knowing about yesterday and hoping about tomorrow. But we are in awe of what to do with today. God is always in the now.
He is the “I am.” If we are going to do anything for the Lord, now is the time. He wants our bodies as living sacrifices. If we wait for a deeper experience or understanding we may miss our greatest opportunities for service and ministry. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. “But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” (Hebrews 3:13)
Today is the day of salvation. From the words of “O Why Not Tonight” by Elizabeth H. Reed, “Do not wait for tomorrow for the sun may never rise to bless thy long deluded sight.”
