Day 20 — Friday, March 24th
Title: The Favorable Time
Scripture: 2 Corinthians 6:2
“[The Lord] says, ‘In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.’ Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
Main Idea: We are living in a unique time of God’s favor. Before it ends we must seize the opportunity to come close to God through Jesus Christ.
For Hungry Readers: We need to understand the era in which we live. In the sight of God it is a special time, a “favorable time.” It is a “day” that has now lasted over two thousand years in which God is offering to sinners the opportunity to be saved through faith in Jesus Christ. It is the day of salvation.
This is the season of God’s kindness when he is looking with favor upon all humanity and offering them the message of the gospel, which is summed up in these words: turn to God in repentance and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. This is a gospel of grace and favor, for God during this unique period in human history is willing to forgive sin, wickedness, godlessness, idolatry. This is a favorable opportunity not to be missed, for it will come to an end.
God is listening. Turn to him and pray and receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Faith Declarations: Today God is listening to me. Now is the favorable time. Today is the day of salvation.
