“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 accepted time; and behold now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
When the gospel of Jesus Christ is heard, the day of salvation and the accepted time of deliverance comes. Eternity is interjected into time in order to produce within the soul what would otherwise be impossible. It may appear to be so simple, and often it is taken for granted and generalized among many other statements that are made but not fully understood. But something more dynamic has happened. Its entrance is so subtle that those seeking the spectacular will often miss it. The grace to become what the Lord has promised is introduced through such simple words as these. They prepare the heart and soul to be with Christ and to reign with Him throughout eternity. We have been given the assignment and the authority to deliver salvation to a dying world. As the Holy Spirit so directs us, we can speak His Word with power and at that very moment a life-changing experience occurs among the hearers. We cannot afford to be silent. God will use somebody. Why not us?
