"Behold now is the accepted time; behoild now is the day of salvation" (II Corinthians 6:2 KJV)
When we step onto an elevator we have a choice of going up or down. A couple of times I have been deep in thought and did not press the button. I passed several moments just standing there, going nowhere. Then I realized I was remaining on the same floor. I had wanted to go up, but stood there without having made the simple choice.
As soon as I pressed the button, I immediately headed toward my destination with a thrust, knowing where I was going. I could even go back to my thoughts and have the comfort of knowing where I would end up.
Sometimes in life we can be at a standstill. There is the important choice of believing in Him and having eternal life. Once we make that choice, we can know our destination is Heaven and be about the work that we are to do in our life.
Lord, thank You for the gift of eternal life. May we each make the choices we need to make.
