Today's reading: 2 Corinthians 6:1-13
Paul is diligent, not to mention passionate, about carrying out his calling and mission to preach the Gospel message. And we see that passion in the urgent way in which he lets the Corinthians know that right now--today--is the time to respond to God's free gift of salvation. "Behold, now is the favorable time; now is the day of salvation" (vs. 2). It was a good reminder for me that part of sharing Christ with others is being bold enough to tell and encourage the person I'm speaking with that time is of the essence.
Did Paul's fervent words impact you today? How would you explain the urgency of making a decision to receive Christ as Savior to someone who is says they prefer to wait to make a decision or they'll consider what you've shared with them at a later time? Tami
