I Am He Who Lives This Day
(Mt6:25-34)

God is everlasting (Neh9:5).
His existence is everlasting and
His Word is also everlasting (Is40:5; 1Pe1:25).

Faith is longing for Him and
The life of this faith is about living this day before the eternity of God.

Eternity is an attribute of the only true God, which
Refers to the fact that He alone is the same yesterday and today and forever (He13:8).
While man has yesterday and today, tomorrow is not guaranteed for him.

Thus, before the presence of God he can only live “this day,” which is
The day “I” the being am certainly existing,
The day “I” the being can do things.
As such, the choice I made yesterday determines who I am today and
The choice I make today determines who I am tomorrow.
Nevertheless, the foolish or the mad is he who
Foolishly dwells in the past and
Presumptuously speaks of the future (Jas4:13-16).

The Bible is the wisdom to live for this day as
It illustrates how from the six days of creation yesterday differs from today.

One day Adam sinned and was driven out of the Garden (Ge3:4-6, 24), after which
He had to toil to find food, only to return to dust in the end (Ge3:17-19) and
By the sin that entered the spirit he had to bear the burden of eternal death (Rm5:12).

Not missing the opportunity of this day (Ge25:31-34),
Jacob bought with a single meal the birthright from his brother Esau,
While Esau could not bring about any change even after he repented (He12:16).

At the end of 430 years, on that very day,
The people of Israel were delivered from their slavery in Egypt (Ex12:41).
Furthermore, after seeing God’s salvation which He worked for them
They never saw the Egyptians again (Ex14:13).
Despite the fact that they ate their daily bread manna which God sent from heaven
Everyday for 40 years in the desert (Ex16:3-6, 13-36), however,
Because they longed their past they were struck down by a very great plague (Nu11:33).

In the Book of Deuteronomy
Moses repeatedly commanded the people who were in the desert this day
To choose to obey the commandments and choose life (Dt30:19-20) for
Entering the promised land tomorrow and their days were still long ahead (Dt5:33).

Referring to the temple where the ark with the golden vase of manna was (He9:1-5),
Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would in not the name Jehovah but the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn5:43),
Give not the perishable food for the flesh but the imperishable food of eternal life (Jn6:31-35),
To not just the Jews but all souls of men.
As such, He finished His course in the three years of His ministry like a day (Lk13:31-33).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Finished the day of the Son of Man and commended His soul to the Father (Lk26:46);
2) Destroyed the works of the devil (1Jn3:8); and
3) Gave life to all men through His redeeming blood (Eph1:7).

He resurrected and sat on the heavenly throne.
He is the Lamb who is the same yesterday, today and forever (He13:8).

The Holy Spirit who came from there
In the name Yeshua to those who have eaten the bread from heaven, His flesh (Jn6:51) and
Lets them live this one day.

The Christian is he who
Does not worry about what to eat (Mt6:31)
But rather thinks about what to do this day.
He does not dwell on yesterday (Mt6:34) and
He does not put off until tomorrow the work that must be done today.
He lives for the kingdom of Christ and His body the church (Mt6:33), and
The souls given to him (He13:13) for
The best choice I make this day will decide my eternity.

O Lord,
Let us not talk nonsense about tomorrow like a mad man.
Rather, let us live this day passionately doing the Lord’s work and
On that day called this day let us go before You! Amen.
