Today

Vance Havner 90x115by Vance Havner

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalm 90:12

Today is not a day to be endured just in order to get over yonder to something better. The grass looks greener in the next pasture, but it is hard to tell which is our most important day. One day has one kind of opportunity, another has another. Let us buy up all the opportunities, for the days are evil.

We are apt to put a red circle around the wrong day. God’s calendar does not look like ours. The big day on ours may be without special significance on His. And the ordinary day, when “nothing much happened,” may, if redeemed to His glory, be a great day in His sight.

Lord of Our Living

Who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:10

I have studied the New Testament enough to know that our Lord Jesus Christ never made the sharp distinctions between "secular" and "sacred" that we do! I think it is wrong to place our physical necessities on one side, and put praying and singing and giving and Bible reading and testifying on the other. When we are living for the Lord and living to please and honor Him, eating our breakfast can be just as spiritual as having our family prayers. There is no reason for a committed Christian to apologize: "Lord, I am awfully sorry but you know I have to eat now. I will be with you again just as soon as I am through." Well, we have a better way than that in our living for God, and we see as we consider His feeding of the 5,000 the meaning of His Lordship. Jesus Christ is Lord-Lord of our bread and Lord of our eating and Lord of our sleeping, and Lord of our working! Brethren, our Lord is with us, sanctifying everything we do, provided it is honest and good.
