PAUL’S CALENDAR – TODAY…THAT DAY

PAUL’S CALENDAR – TODAY…THAT DAY“For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know Whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until THAT DAY.” (2 Timothy 1:
12)

“Someone has said that Paul’s calendar had only two days, “TODAY” and “THAT DAY.” The man who is ready for THAT DAY is ready for ANY DAY. But we need to wear our spiritual bifocals and see BOTH DAYS. Some of the saints are near-sighted. Some are far-sighted. Paul may have had trouble with his physical eyes, but he had no spiritual astigmatism. He had good bifocals; he saw the near and the far.

Do not busy yourself TODAY with “wood, hay, stubble,” and fail to build with “gold, silver, precious stones” against THAT DAY. For “THE DAY shall declare it,” and the works of some will go up in smoke!

On the other hand, do not so contemplate ETERNITY (THAT DAY) that you waste TODAY. Some people think they are Mystics when they are only Mistakes!” (Vance Havner)

“He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. TODAY, if you would hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.” (Psalm 95:7-8)

Making the most of TODAY is the best way to be ready for THAT DAY.

TODAY let us rise and go to our work. Tomorrow, we shall rise and go to our reward! (R Fuller)

TODAY take a moment to sing Daniel Whittle’s great hymn to Him…

I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED (play)

I know not why God’s wondrous grace,
To me He hath made known.
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love,
Redeemed me for His own.

But I know Whom I have believed,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against THAT DAY.

I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart
Nor how believing in His Word
Wrought peace within my heart.

I know not when my Lord may come
At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I’ll walk the vale with Him,
Or meet Him in the air.
