My brother, my sister, why not make “Tomorrow,” Today? Most believers know how to quote the Word of God, but when it comes to applying it, that is another story. Today, I would like us to meditate of this common expression that many believers (and obviously, backsliders and people who still don’t know Jesus) often use when they are invited to do something for the kingdom or simply to attend church service: “I will let you know”.
My friend, doesn’t the Bible tell us that we should not neglect the assembly like the others do? (Hebrews 10:25) Doesn’t the Bible teach us that “I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”” (Psalm 122:1).Now, very often, instead of joy, we get the coldness of “I will let you know”.
My friend, God is holding the breath of life of each person on this earth. And Jesus is returning one day soon and He will judge the living and the dead (2 Timothy 4:1). Now, imagine that God tells you when you are praying to live “I will let you know”; imagine Jesus who is the way to God tells you “I will let you know”… Or, let’s go back in history when He accepted to freely give his life for us… imagine when God said I am sending you to die for those lost people, Jesus had answered “I will let you know”… Where would we be now, since there would certainly no longer be any lamb without blemish for the forgiveness of our sins. All this to say, let’s not continue to pretend we know Jesus, we love Jesus or we are walking with Jesus when the first answer we have to give to whatever concerns Jesus and the Kingdom of God is “I will let you know”. Remember today’s verse that says “Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do.” (Proverbs 6:4). Also remember that “Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.”” (Ecclesiastes 11:3-4).
I can only finish this meditation with a verse that reminds us of where our priorities should be when it comes to managing our time: “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5:15-17). Don’t ever fool yourself thinking that procrastinating with Jesus or the things of God will ever do any good to you, your walk with the Lord or your own salvation: imagine if when your life on earth ends and you stand at the door of heaven and Jesus says: “I will let you know…” because He is examining your record and seeing more miss than deeds that are aligned with His instructions? He said not everyone who calls Him “Lord, Lord” will enter heaven (Matthew 7:21)… that is also why the Bible tells us that many are called but few are chosen… because most keep saying to the Lord “I will let you know”, yet nobody knows the time and hour of our end on earth or of the return of Jesus. May those who have ears hear. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
