DAILY READINGS: Joshua 13:1-33; Isaiah 9:8-10:4; Luke 24:36-53
Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always here…” John 7:6
The Lord declared that His time had not yet come to accomplish the work of salvation. Eventually it would come, but only according to God’s perfect timing—not before and not after. In contrast, their time was always ready as it is with anyone outside the household of faith. What it takes to make peace in a person’s life is unknown to us (Luke 19:42). But one thing is sure, dear friend, your time is always ready to come to the Saviour since you do not know what a day may bring forth (Proverbs 27:1). Why not settle the issue and come to Him today? —Mark Kolchin
“All things are ready,” come to the feast! Come, for the door is open
wide; A place of honour is reserved, for you at the Master’s side.
