NOW!

NOW!

*** ONLY THIS MOMENT MATTERS! ***

We get consumed with the past (guilt/ regrets/ etc.) or the future (dreams/ fantasies/ wishful thinking/ greed/ envy/ etc.). These distractions keep us from being

FOCUSED ON THE NOW!

ETERNITY IS IN THIS VERY MOMENT!

NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!

Corollary to this, is that

AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT, I CAN RE-FOCUS!

Remember the water-to-wine miracle? (John chapter 2) When Mary asked, Jesus replied, “IT’S NOT MY TIME!” (Was He wrong? Hardly; otherwise He couldn’t have remained sinless!) Somehow Mary’s faith caused that to change: Jesus got in touch with the Father (“I do only what I see the Father do,” He said elsewhere) AND HIS TIME CAME! HE RE-FOCUSED! WOW! “Today if you will hear His voice…” (Hebrews 3, quoting several spots in the Old Testament, including Psalms)

“NOW” IS MOST CRUCIAL (“CRUX”)

NOW IS MOST IMPORTANT

I CAN CHOOSE TO BE A “NOW” PERSON!

GOD IS “IN” THE NOW!
