In my sermon today, I am taking the church through some of the “now” scriptures in the Bible. The little word “now” is a very interesting word. The word means, “at the present moment of time; or without any further delay.” The Holy Spirit moved the writers and translators of the Bible to use that little word quite often. In fact, the word “now” is used over a thousand times in the Bible. In my lesson, we only cover a few of those Scriptures. Below are a few for you to consider – these are what we as believers have NOW in Christ according to the Bible:
A Salvation that is nearer (Romans 13:11). Justification (Romans 5:9). Reconciliation (Romans 5:11; Colossians 1:22). No condemnation (Romans 6:22; 8:1). Light (Ephesians 5:8). Life (1 Thessalonians 3:8). The right to be called children of God (1 John 3:1-2). Mercy (1 Peter 2:10).
There are many many more. Why not take some time NOW and read God’s Word to see what He would have you do NOW.
