A leader of a dance band once told me that a number of his friends in the bars had confided to him that they thought they ought to be saved… someday. He agreed and thought he would also come to Christ… someday. To the best of my knowledge, he is still lost.
The Bible calls “today” the day of salvation: “…Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (II Corinthians 6:2).
This very moment God wants to save you: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).
James amplified Solomon’s warning about tomorrow: “Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that” (James 4:13-15).
So, we cannot be sure about tomorrow.
But we have today… right now.
Today to be aware of sin. Today to turn from sin to Christ. Today to believe… to receive Him.
Take Him now… before the vapour vanishes.
Receiving Christ today gives tomorrow its only certainty… salvation!
