Some people say, “One day I will do this or some day I will do that…” A friend commented, “Not ‘one day’ or ‘some day’ – let’s do it today.”
Another friend shared how her backslidden husband returned to Christ. It was at a birthday party when a friend simply asked him, “What are you waiting for?”
Some people are waiting for more time. Some people want to settle this or that first. I am reminded of the parable of the wedding banquet (Matthew 22:1-14).
As I meditate on the above verses, I was led to read:
And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on His name.
Paul tells the Philippians to continue to work out their salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in them to will and to act according to His good purpose (Philippians 2:12b-13).
Dear Father God, please strengthen us through the Spirit of truth so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. I pray that we being rooted and established in love, may have power to grasp and know Your love that surpasses knowledge – that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. You are able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to Your power that is at work within us, to You be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
