NOW IS THE TIME

       “Behold, now is the acceptable/favorable time (καιρὸς εὐπρόσδεκτος, время благоприятное); behold, now is the day of salvation.” (2 Cor 6: 2b)

 

     The best time, the most “favorable” time, for me to respond to God’s call to me, to be found or “saved,” like a ship lost at sea, is now. And this is true, whatever is going on in my chaotic life in the moment, and however little time I seem to have for matters “spiritual.” The Apostle tells me, “now is the day of salvation.” Because God meets us where we are. We may be limited in our places and times of prayer, and in our forms of prayer, sometimes very feeble, informal, and not the way prayer is “supposed” to look, – but He is “everywhere and fills all things,” and is not limited in hearing us, anywhere and at any time.

 

     So let us not procrastinate, or imagine some “more favorable” time, when the kids grow up, or when we’ll retire, or when our spouse dies (sorry for that dark note). “Behold, now is the acceptable time,” the holy Apostle tells me, whatever my “now” looks like. So let me "accept" it, and let me hear God’s call to me today, to come home, and be “found” or “saved” in my Father’s house, however awkward or untraditional my return to Him may look. He runs out and meets me while I am still “at a distance,” as He met the prodigal son (Lk 15:20). Let me not be discouraged by the insufficiencies of my prayer-life, and just humbly re-connect, however I can, with my loving Father, Who is waiting for me, wherever and however I am.
