Not for another 1000 years will there be another date like today’s. Six one’s all in a row. Perfection.
As amazing as that is, however, do you realize that not even in 10,000 years will there EVER be another day like today. Never. This is it. At midnight, it will be gone.
I have no elegant words about the magnitute of TODAY and NOW, so let me simply share some scriptures. God says it so much better than I.
Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” (Hebrews 3:13)
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. (Hebrews 4:7)
For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2)
For now we really live, since you are standing firm in the Lord. (1 Thessalonnians 3:8)
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. (2 corinthians 5:16)
Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means. (2 Corinthians 8:11)
And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming. (1 John 2:28)
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. (1 Corinthians 13;12)
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen. (2 Peter 3:18)
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. (Revelation 21:3)
Have a blessed TODAY — NOW— on 11-11-11.
