'Now is the acceptable timeí ~2 Cor 6:2
How often we hear about keeping our feet in the here and now. There are so many options and possibilities out there today that itís easy to think a lot about the future and what we could be doing. It is much more difficult concentrating on what is just before us. A quick glance at any section of our scripture readings will point to God being present in the here and now. Our lives do not exist in yesterday or in tomorrow. Now is the only time God gives us for doing anything. Now may not always be the right moment, it may not always be the easiest but itís all we can work with. Easter is all about maximising the potential of the here and now. We ask Godís help over the coming weeks of Easter in making the most of everything that has been given to us, especially all that has been given to us today.
