I was walking through the halls of my kids school Tuesday and noticed a bulletin board that say “The Power of Yet”… There were dozens of excuses on it such as “I don’t understand it…” “I can’t do it…” and more. These little words can mean so much and be so powerful. The word yet often ties in with procrastination. Putting things off to the last minute can cost us our jobs, certain goals to not be met, and even our eternal life.
Christians and non-Christians often use the excuse “I still have plenty of time” when answering questions about getting their life’s straight. We all are guilty of this at times. But the reality is, we don’t have any idea when our last second is. We are not promised tomorrow much less the rest of the hour. If you are saying “I have not repented…yet”, “I have not confessed…yet”, or “I have not been baptized…yet”… What you waiting on? Your time of “yet” may never come.
God is Good.
“whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” James 4:14
