Live in the Now

Scriptures: Hebrews 11:6, Luke 5:17

For the simple reason that many”God is about to do something.”, or, “someday God is going to move.” Now some of this is sincere but for the most part it shows our tendency to live in the future. Then not now a good thing will happen. unfortunately though the future is bright in Christ and we will experience all the wonder of Heaven we can not live in the imagination of what the future will be like. Just as the moon can not reflect the sun of yesterday or the sun of tomorrow we can not reflect the light of the Lord Jesus, the Son of God unless we do it in the present. Real living is living in the now. Now we can discover God’s purpose for our life. Now we can grow in faith. Now we can experience His presence. Learn from the past and look forward to the future but don’t forget to live with God in the now. sadly while trying to live in the past life is indeed passing them by.

How offten have you heard someone say something like, “When we get Heaven then we will truly know what God is like.”, or, and present successes most be compared to the past. The best preachers lived in the past. The best worship took place in the past and the past is the bench mark of church life. people find that so hard to accomplish.

I know that there are many people who live in the past. The past is the best of times for them. All experiences, accomplishments,
This past week end I attended a conference of the Good News Penticostal churches in Dartmouth. Our Pastor Kevin Walsh spoke a powerful message on Friday night in which he encouraged people to, ” live in the now,”. Why would he encourage us to live in the now?
