The Time is Now!

Reading my bible this morning and this jumped out of it. I just had to put it up as it is so what I would say 
Its a quote taken from the Revival Study Bible and its an incert along with the word:

The time is Now! (2 Cor 6:2)

"Everyone should sense the urgency of the days in which we live. While there is a might move of God sweeping the world, there is also an ominous fear gripping the hearts of millions. You can read about it in the headlines and hear about it on the evening news. Throughout the world, there is a deep concern about the future. The Bible says, "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near". (Isa 55:6).
We are living in a season of grace. God has chosen to bless, not curse. He has chosen mercy, not judgment. But, my friend, this could change at any moment. God wants to send revival to you and your household now. There is no promise of tomorrow. 

Now is the time to allow the light of the gospel of Christ to shine into the deep dark, inner recesses of your heart.
Now is the time to break up the topsoil of your heart and allow the precious Word of God to enter like a seed falling on a freshly tilted garden.
Now is the time to drop your heavy burdens at the food of the cross, take His yoke upon you, and learn of Him.
Now is the time to cast all your cares upon Jesus, because He cares for you.

Many of us spend so much time musing over past mistakes that we miss the opportunity right before us. May of us are so preoccupied with taking care of our tomorrows, that we bypass our opportunity today. Remember, the opportunity of a lifetime must be seized during the lifetime of the opportunity.

When God comes near in His great mercy, do not miss your opportunity. We have no promise of tomorrow. Tomorrow is a date that can only be found in a fool's calendar. Now is the day of salvation. Do not put it off. Go after God. Pursue Him for revival in your own life and in the lives of those around you.
