“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”
Behold, now is the accepted time;
behold, now is the day of salvation.
~ 2 Corinthians 6:2 ~
Our God is great; there is none like Him. He is loving, patient, kind, gracious, merciful, and compassionate, yet He is righteous and calls every man to give an account of his life.
But He did not forsake us; as Abraham told Isaac, “My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering” (Genesis 22:8). Therefore, God the Father gave His only Son, Jesus, the light of world, knowing what would happen to Him, to be the propitiation of our sins, our Redeemer (1 John 2:2, 4:10). His will was fulfilled and in doing so, Jesus reconciled man to God.
Every day He reaches out to mankind with an invitation to enter into a relationship with Him. Every day some accept, and some reject Him; and life, in a form, continues.
The words of Psalm 19:2 contain the words, “Day unto day” and “Night unto night.” These words are the inspiration for this poem.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this age of grace in which we live. Thank You for being mindful of us and caring for us (Psalm 8:4). Truly, there is none like You. Help us to be mindful of Your presence in our lives and to be thankful.
Light of the world who came into darkness and revealed our need for a savior, thank You. It is Your name that saves and brings comfort; it is the name that is above all names, Jesus, Son of the living God, King of kings and Lord of lords. Be exalted, O LORD, above the earth! In Jesus’ precious name, amen.
