Today is a day like no other. Why?
Because it’s today.
Okay, I know how cliche that sounds but I want to remind you, today, that this is the only day you have.
Matthew 6:34 says:
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
God doesn’t want us to worry about tomorrow. He wants us to be present; in the moment. He wants us to think and be in today.
Today is very special. It is our time here on earth. And, by golly when you think about it, it sure is short. Our time here prepares us for our eternal life in Heaven. Our eternal destiny. It sounds kinda wackadoo. I know. Especially if you are new to this whole Christ-follower thing, or you don’t know Jesus at all yet. But, God came to earth for you. He came to earth so that he could know us and teach us. I kinda equate it to this…
So you know when a top CEO dons a disguise and goes to the lowest position of his or her company to see how it’s really run? Remember that show? I know it’s farfetched but stay with me here.
Jesus came to be our great rabboni–our great teacher. He left his position in Heaven as the Right Hand Man of God to come to earth to grow and love and teach us, specifically about the heart of His Dad, our Father. He not only came to teach us, but he also came to die for us as a sacrificial lamb taking on all our sins and erasing them from the books. Can you imagine? All of our sins were placed on him. Sins from people born two millennia later who he didn’t even meet in person while he was here in the flesh.
Yet, he did it anyway. He could have chosen a different way. He even asked our Father to “let this cup pass from me” if it wasn’t God’s will. But, he did it. He stayed true to course. Even though it was scary.
He took his today.
What does God want you to do today? Sit with Him and ask Him. He has lots of good things to say.
