For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2).

The word, “Today” in this context is referred to your present state of life. Many a time, we are quick to omit our present state of life from our salvation experience and testimony. We make reference to our past and future, but forget today which represents our present state of life. The Bible says in the opening text that He says: in an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you. Behold, now is the day of salvation. Every testimony of man’s salvation that does not involve his present state of life is dead and counterfeited.

Salvation of life that does not include today is incomplete and imperfect. God wants above all things that your salvation of life be complete and perfect. That is why the Bible tells us in Hebrews 3:13, “But exhort one another daily, while it is called ‘Today,’ lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” God expects your salvation of life to be balanced in cutting across the past, present and future. It is indeed your present state of salvation life that will determine your future glory in Christ Jesus.

The Bible gives us a vivid account of Jesus Christ when He was about to begin His earthly ministry. He went into the Synagogue on the Sabbath day and was presented a scroll from Prophet Isaiah. He publicly announced His manifesto to the amazing crowd (Luke 4:16-19); and He went further to declare at the end of His manifesto thus, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing” (Luke 4:21). Of course, whenever your present state of life is omitted from your salvation testimony in Christ Jesus, it simply gives room for doubt and questioning.

Daily Tip: Without your present state of life, your salvation experience and testimony is incomplete and imperfect. Shalom!
