Right Now Counts Forever: Devotional for February 23, 2022

Today’s Bible reading from the Five Day Bible Reading Plan: Leviticus 15-18; Psalm 31; Hebrews 6

Each morning, we start our day that will have a ripple effect on the rest of the day. Yet, as the days go on, we often move about based on the commitments we make that end up shaping the trajectory of our lives for both the here and the hereafter.

Psalm 31:5 says, “Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.” Our spirit is that which lives on into eternity based on the redemption that took place in time. R.C. Sproul would often say, “Right now counts forever.” Is the life you live now based on the commitments you make toward eternity?

On the cross, Jesus said this phrase from Psalm 31 (see Luke 23:46). Jesus’ earthly life was always in the hands of His Father. His mission accomplished, His redemptive work finished, He died the death we deserved only to rise again three days later to give us the life He promised and provided.

Have you committed your life to Christ? If not, confess your sins to Him and turn to Christ and Christ alone.
