The Urgency of Now: What the Bible Says About Being Urgent.

We tend to procrastinate and put off what needs to be done until the last minute. We often wait until we are in crisis mode before taking action. However, the Bible teaches us to live with a sense of urgency and not postpone things that need immediate attention. Today, we will examine what the Bible says about being urgent based on Romans 13:11-12.

Romans 13:11-12 says, "And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber because our Salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light." This passage encourages us to wake up and start taking action because the time is now; our Salvation is nearer than before.

We are not told to wait until tomorrow but to take immediate action. This is a call to be urgent and mindful of the present time. We must not live for the moment but with a sense of purpose, understanding the significance of the current time. Therefore, we must prioritize what needs to be done instead of procrastinating.

Proverbs 27:1 also tells us not to boast about tomorrow but to acknowledge that we are unsure what tomorrow might bring. We mustn't assume we will have tomorrow to do what we must. We must not wait for things to happen but be proactive.

Acts 17:30-31 reminds us that God has appointed a day when the world will be judged with justice. Therefore, we must be ready to account for our lives and deeds because we won't be given a second chance.

Matthew 24:36-44 also encourages us to be vigilant and watchful because we do not know the day or the hour when Christ will return. This means we must be ready at all times. Therefore, we must be diligent, faithful, and steadfast in what we do so we will not be caught off guard.


As believers, we must live with a sense of urgency because Salvation is nearer now than it was before. We must prioritize what needs to be done and not procrastinate, knowing we are unsure what tomorrow might bring. We must always be ready, diligent, and faithful in what we do.

Being urgent is not about running around and being restless; it's about being mindful of the present and taking action when necessary. Let us take the necessary steps today and not wait until tomorrow, for tomorrow may be too late.
