Maybe today! We all say that a lot. Maybe today I will get that room cleaned out, maybe today I will clean out that closet, or maybe today I will get a plan together to pay off those bills. But more importantly, sometimes we say, “Maybe today I will witness to that person,” “Maybe today I will forgive that person” or “Maybe today I will start my day with Bible reading and prayer.” But we all know that many times these “days” come and go.
Allow me to remind us of something that may indeed happen today. Maybe today Jesus will come. One day the trumpet will sound, and the dead in Christ will rise first and then we who are alive will be caught up together with the Lord. You will find this in 1 Thessalonians 4. The obvious implications of this are important. We are running out of “days” to do what we know we should do.
Ephesians 5:15-16 says we are to “walk circumspectly not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil.” Live today like it may be “the day” when Jesus keeps this promise and comes to get us. And in the mean time, let us Worship Him, Wait For Him, Witness of Him and Work For Him.
Is He coming? YES, without a doubt. Will it be today? Perhaps! Should I live differently because it could happen today? Absolutely.
