The importance of now cannot be over emphasized, especially on things spiritual. Consider the concept of new beginnings. New starts are part and parcel of the biblical message and an often overlooked point is extremely important.
Can you undo time? Can you go back and start over, say in 1974? If this were possible I would get the old time travel vehicle out and head to that year, or any year, and make adjustments. We can’t do this. We can have forgiveness, but to make a new start in 1974 is not going to happen.
Maria Robinson shares a truth that really helps, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
Many life trainers insist that a plan be mapped out and repeat the mantra, “We start today.” Have you ever said, “I wish I had started this years ago?” If so, you are in the vast majority. Dennis Waitley made a fortune convincing people that there is no such place as “Someday Isle.”
God is on record as insisting on now rather than later. Notice Paul’s admonition to the church at Corinth, 2 Corinthians 6:2, “(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.)” Many who plan on 12:00 O’Clock die at 11:59. Now.
