Today Is My Day!
I once asked myself: When is man going to be the son of God? Will he be tomorrow? Was he yesterday? Then I thought of John's dynamic words, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God."I John 3:2; Today, then, is the day. Of course, we are referring to real man, God's image or likeness, the true selfhood of everyone. The Bible tells us that God designated Himself to Moses as I am. Note that the first person, present tense is used here. Consequently, God's reflection, individual man, is presently—right now—an idea or expression of Almighty God Himself.
Conversely, mortal man is the offspring of the flesh; he flowers, declines, and dies, supposedly attaining spiritual status only in the hereafter. Believing that we are not yet sons of God, we are apt to conclude that we are not yet heirs of God—in spite of Jesus' assurance that we include the kingdom of God now. How the carnal mind attempts to substitute tomorrow for the today of our divine endowment!
"Tomorrow" thinking—that man can be better off in the future—may cause one in high school to live for college, in college for marriage, and afterward to dream of security or the time when the children are grown. Then what? Perhaps those things for which there hasn't seemed to be just the right time. To some students of Christian Science this might mean joining a branch church.
