There was a day sometime back that was anything but ho hum. On that day the Son of God, the Lord and Savior of mankind was born into this world (Lk. 2:1-11). He came to call the lost to salvation (Lk. 19:10; Matt. 11:28-30).
There was another day that was certainly not ho hum. On that day the Savior went to the cross to die (Lk. 23:26-43). In dying on that cross He served as the perfect sacrifice to pay the price for the guilt of our sins (2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 2:9; 9:28), to redeem us from the condemnation of sin (1 Pet. 1:18-19).
Then another day dawned, an incredible day, clearly not a ho hum day. The Savior arose from the grave (Lk. 24:1-12)! His resurrection established truthfulness and authority behind everything He taught and claimed during His ministry on this earth (1 Cor. 15:1-8).
Another day is coming. It won’t be ho hum either. On that day this world will be burned up, everything in it will melt with fervent heat (2 Pet. 3:10-12). The Lord will come again to judge mankind, to hold us accountable for how we live our lives (Acts 17:30-31; 2 Thess. 7-9; 2 Cor. 5:10). He will divide the sheep from the goats (Matt. 25:31-32).
A life that is primarily focused on this world is a hopeless existence (1 Cor. 15:17-19; 1 Jn. 2:15-17). A life that is not lived in anticipation of eternal salvation is without meaningful direction, without ultimate purpose. There’s no reason to live a ho hum life. We were created in the image of God, with a spiritual essence (Gen. 1:26-27). Therefore our lives have inherent worth. We need to look up and see our God and walk with Him daily, every step of the way…
