Now is the Day of Salvation

Just this last week I visited with two different beautiful women who are at home under Hospice care preparing to pass over from this life to the next.  What if you were told that this week would be your last one on earth? How would you spend its fleeting hours? Whom would you insist on seeing? Would your behavior differ radically from what it usually is? Someone has wisely said, "You should treat every day as if it's your last one, because one of these days it will be"
There's no getting around it. Whether our earthly life ends by accident, illness, or old age,  one of these days will be our last. That's why we should guard so carefully the things we do and the words we say.
We ought to be tying up the loose ends of long-neglected matters by expressing our love and gratitude to others, by seeking reconciliation with an alienated friend, or by sharing the gospel with an acquaintance, neighbor, relative or co-worker.
Perhaps you've even been putting off accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior until some more convenient day. But that day may never come. Since your last day on earth can be so unexpected, heed the Apostle Paul's inspired words:
"Now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (2 Corinthians 6:2).
