What time is it?

In addition to the intriguing nature of the many time zones around the world, the question of time is an important reality on this side of eternity. Much of our life revolves around the clock, being on time, and having time to do what is needed.

There are penalties in life when matters are not completed in time. There's the paper due in university. There's the project at work. There's meeting the kids after school or getting the husband to work on time. Ever miss a train or plane because you were late?

There's time to do what we need to do. We need to take full advantage of the time we have. The clock doesn't stop or even slow down for any of us. What time is it for you?

2 Corinthians 6:2 (NIV)
2 For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation.
