“‘Now’, cried the apostle, ‘is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation,’ — meaning, not that now men must prepare for a future-world salvation, or safety, but that now is the time in which to experience that salvation in spirit and in life.”
(Science and Health, p. 39)
Let’s take the inspired apostle at his word. Now!
We may think of salvation as something that happens after death or that is contingent upon some further coming of a savior or aligning of the stars. But the day of salvation is a day of realization.
The Truth of being will never be any truer than it is right now. The Christ came to human thought and revealed reality—man and woman at one with God, made in His image, and beloved. These facts were not taught and demonstrated to tease us with something presently intangible. Jesus came to show us that the accepted time, the time of acceptance of salvation, is right now.
God’s Love for us is here. This powerful affection is infinite Life. If we deny this and push it off into the future, we miss out on this day—one that is already full of goodness, light, and life.
Let’s not spend our days in preparation or anticipation. Let’s not take this moment for granted or consider it small and inconsequential. Today is the day. Now is the time to experience this salvation, this safety, this fearless understanding of infinite Life as ours right here, right now.
