Key Words: behold, now is the day of salvation
In his book, The Principles of Psychology, William James says, “The deepest principle of human nature is the craving for appreciation.”As you read in II Corinthians it becomes obvious that the church of Corinth did not fully appreciate the work and sacrifice Paul had gone through for the church to be in existence. Paul had carried them the good news of salvation, but even now Paul was not sure that all who said they were saved were genuinely born again (verse 2).
The desire of every pastor is to know that those whom he pastors are truly born again.
A pastor was dealing with a young lady who was arguing that she had plenty of time to decide for Jesus Christ. He handed her a piece of paper and said, “Would you sign a statement that you would be willing to postpone salvation for a year?” No, she would not do that. Six months? No again. One month? She hesitated, but said no. Then she began to see the folly of her argument because she had assurance of opportunity only for today; and she trusted Christ without delay.
If you are not born again, let today be the day of your salvation.
What to do:
✞ Be saved today, for today is the day of salvation.
