Today & The Day
On my way to work I was listening to the radio preacher and he said, in God's book there are only two days that matter.
The first day that matters is today. This is the day that the Lord has made and we are to rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24). I feel this is something lots of people understand this one and it is reflected (often) in one of two ways. Our natural tendency is to:
1. Eat, drink, be merry (Luke 12:19), and gorge ourselves on every conceivable pleasure and vice, OR to
2. Delude ourselves and distract ourselves from the obvious end of all men.
Without God though, the final result is similar: excessive self-indulgence in the first case or restrained self-centeredness in the second.
But our spiritual tendency ought to be ask God to help us number our days to gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12). Then we will be able to use today in preparation for "The Day".
"The Day" is the second day that matters to God -- this is the day when Christ will return. Life and time as we know it will cease and with it the opportunity to use that life and time to please God. But until "The Day", that opportunity is beckoning to us:
The end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers...love one another...Be hospitable...without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. -- 1 Peter 4:7-10
