NOW IS THE ACCEPTED TIME


MEMORY VERSE: (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.) 2 Corinthians 6:2

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:2 Kings 6-10

There are seasons to life. Genesis 8:22 says, “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” We have two seasons in the part of the world where i was born: raining season and dry season. In UK, there are four seasons: autumn, spring, summer and winter. Everything in life is time bound. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” There is a time to be single, and there is a time to be married. When you are in High school preparing for your O’ levels, or in the university studying to get a degree, is a time to be single not a time to run after ladies or keep boyfriends. It is not the time to invest in expensive shoes, bags, accessories and enjoy yourself. No, it is the time to study hard and graduate with a good grade. Many of our youths think that the university is a place to enjoy but unfortunately it is not. The university is not designed for you to enjoy but to mold you and prepare you for your chosen discipline. Sir/ma, your children don’t need expensive cars in the university. Once they graduate with good grades, you can buy them any car of their choice.

Young man and woman, there is a time God wants you to be single, and there is a time God wants you to be married. The Lord did not give Adam a wife the first day He created him (Genesis 2:8). The first thing God gave to Adam was work, after that He gave him a wife (Genesis 2:16-25). Single brother, now that you are looking for a job is a time to be single. No matter how small, get a job first. Instead of marrying and then expecting God to miraculously provide for you and your wife, why not use that faith to get a job first and then settle down for marriage. There is a time to train a child and that is when he or she is young. Once that time passes, it becomes extremely difficult to train that child. All you can do then is wake up every night and pray asking the Lord to touch his or her heart. Why not safe yourself that stress in the future by doing everything you can to train that child now. Although, everything is time bound in life, there are one or two things that are not time bound. For example, salvation is not time bound. 2 Corinthians 6:2 says, “(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).” According to Hebrew 3:15, if you hear His voice today don’t harden your hearts. Don’t postpone the day of your salvation because you don’t know tomorrow. Not too long ago, i heard the story of a man who complained of stomach ache at 8 pm and by 3 am he was gone. According to Ecclesiastes 12:1,now is the time to remember God and serve Him with everything you have because a time is coming when you will not be able to do that. Now is the time to deal with that habit of lateness and procrastination. Now is the time to deal with anger. Now is the time to make peace with your family members. If you are not in talking terms with your parents or siblings, call them and make peace. Now is the time to call your pastor and apologize to him or her. Now is the time to deal with that pornography habit. Now is the time to end that relationship with that man who you are not married to. Now is the time to win souls. Now is the time to pay attention to your wife and love her. Now is the time to be a real father to your children. Now is the time to work hard. Now is the time to take your spiritual life serious.The time is now!

PRAYER POINT: Father, i have heard your Word please help me.
