Right Now! (Part 2)
The word "now" is the word that best describes the gospel. Get it right now and experience the benefits right now! It's free for the taking right now! What are you waiting for? If God is not waiting, why should you! If God is willing to save right now, a person would have to be crazy not to receive salvation right now! And as soon as you take this offer now, you will experience a whole series of nows.
Listen to Romans 8:1—“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Think of that! The moment you get saved there is immediately no condemnation. When we stand before God we will not receive a reduced sentence, but we will be acquitted of all charges! Getting saved now means getting forgiven now, which means getting justified now, which brings peace now! "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Ro. 5:1). When? As soon as you do it!
We're just getting started! Tomorrow, we will look at more benefits that kick in right away upon believing.
