Now is the Day of Salvation!

2 Corinthians 6:1-2

Working together with him, then, we entreat you not to accept the grace of God in vain. For he says, “At the acceptable time I have listened to you, and helped you on the day of salvation.” Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

To all those who feel hesitant to approach God because you feel unworthy, or are held back by nameless jitters from entering the Catholic Church, or are convinced that God can’t ever forgive that unspeakable thing you did once, today’s verse is loud and clear:  You are acceptable to God in Christ.  Now.  Today.  Take a step.  Now is the day of salvation.
