Repent and follow Jesus now
2 Corinthians 6:2 (KJV)
For he saith, I have heard¹ thee in a time² accepted³,
and in the day⁴ of salvation⁵ have I succoured⁶ thee:
behold⁷, now⁸ is the accepted³ time²;
behold⁷, now⁸ is the day⁴ of salvation⁵.
¹) To hear with favour, grant one’s request.
²) A fixed and definite time, the time when things are brought to crisis, the decisive epoch waited for, also the opportune or seasonable time.
⁴) The day, used of the natural day, or the interval between sunrise and sunset, as distinguished from, and contrasted with the night.
⁵) This word is used of the deliverance of the Israelites from the Egyptians (Exodus 14:13) and of deliverance generally from evil or danger. In the New Testament it is specially used with reference to the great deliverance from the guilt and the pollution of sin by Jesus Christ, “the great salvation” (Hebrews 2:3).
⁶) Brought help to you, brought aid to you.
⁸) At this time, at this very moment
God reminds us, I heard your call in the nick of time; in the time of favor, in the time of an assured welcome. On the day you needed me, I was there to help you, on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation)
Well, now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance (of you from God); behold, now is the day of salvation!
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, God is ready to help you right now! Now is the day of salvation. So why should you delay, miss the offered opportunity, and feel sorry later?
