TODAY is Not a Day for Quitting

Posted by


How are you doing today? Do you feel like giving up, turning back and calling it quits? Today is not that day! Today is the day to come out of discouragement and get back in the game.

The book of Hebrews mentions the word “today” seven times. The first time describes the revelation that Jesus is superior to, and worthy of, more honor, love and glory than any of the prophets, patriarchs or angels. We are urged that “today” is the moment in all of time and for all time to recognize the Son of God, Jesus, who is worthy of our faith and our most extravagant worship. Three times the word is used as a warning. After beginning well, we must not allow the difficulty and suffering to damage our trust or turn our hearts hard and bitter, nor turn our ears deaf.

Today, in this time and through every circumstance, it is time to listen to His voice. In between the three warnings comes a call to us to encourage one another today so sin cannot deceive us and take anyone down. This encouragement is Spirit-filled and scripturally sound, cutting to the heart of sin and deceit and instilling confidence in the One worthy of faith and worship.

Today is the time to be in committed community with those unafraid to speak the truth and who do not shrink back. Finally, the last two instances of this word: We are reminded that Jesus is the same yesterday, TODAY and forever. His faithfulness, lovingkindness, salvation, intercession, mercy, forgiveness, promises and kingdom are forever.

So today, though we may suffer for a little while, is not a day for quitting. No, TODAY, no matter the circumstances is the time to look to Jesus, “the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of God. Consider Him…so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted” (Heb. 12: 2-3, ESV).
