Perhaps Today, Someday,
But Definitely One Day
It is easy to become so involved with the demands of life
that we often fail to recognize the value of the present while
remembering our past. Nostalgia means: “A wistful or
excessively sentimental yearning for a return to or of some
past period or irrecoverable condition.” We all have
tendencies to look backward to what things were like in the
rose-colored glasses of our past. However, Jesus commands
us to go forward into His future.
62 But Jesus told him, Anyone who puts a
hand to the plow and then looks back is not
fit for the Kingdom of God. Luke 9:62 [NLT]
We must remember that yesterday is today in the past
tense. We are reminded that today is an opportunity set
before us. In Scripture, we hear our Lord declare from the
Psalm of yesterday…
24 This is the day the LORD has made. We
will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
to the command of…
Today is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:1-2 (NLT]
The hope of the past gives promise to our future. The
resurrection of Jesus is not just an historical event, but
rather a present reality to Christians. The Jesus of the past is
the Jesus of our present and our future. JESUS: Past,
Present, and Future! Christ died to redeem us perfectly and
perpetually. His redemptive sacrifice for us and His
triumphal resurrection insures that our sinful past is firmly
eradicated. Christ’s death and resurrection insure salvation
until His triumphant return for His church, the “Bride of
8 But God showed his great love for us
by sending Christ to die for us while
we were still sinners. Romans 5:8 [NLT]
Christ forgives our past, the Holy Spirit guarantees
our 12 And we are instructed to turn from godless
living and sinful pleasures. We should live in
this evil world with wisdom, righteousness,
and devotion to God, 13 while we look
forward with hope to that wonderful day
when the glory of our great God and Savior,
Jesus Christ, will be revealed. 14 He gave his
life to free us from every kind of sin, to
cleanse us, and to make us his very own
people, totally committed to doing good
deeds. Titus 2:12-14 [NLT]
Our yesterdays are gone!
Our present is brief!
Our future is God’s alone!
In our yesterday, Christ brought salvation and hope. In our
today we live in that hope. In our future hope is confirmed at
His coming. Yesterday is gone; today is moving rapidly into
past tense; someday is anticipated; but that “Definitely One
Day” of His return is assured. Jesus’ Resurrection guarantees
our salvation and eternal life. Jesus is coming again!
Perhaps today, someday, . . . but definitely ONE DAY!
