TODAY
Acts 6: 5
“This proposal pleased the whole group. They chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit; also Philip, Procorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas from Antioch, a convert to Judaism.”
Stephen known as the first martyr.
Philip was probably the one who saw great evangelistic success in Samaria.
Prochorus is unknown and left for much speculation.
Nicanor is also unknown and there is nothing certain known.
Timon could have been a known bishop but there is no proof that he is the same man.
Parmenus is not even mentioned in legend.
Nicolas is the original founder of the evil sect, the Nicolatians of Revelation, so some people think but it is just an opinion.
Sometimes it is very much about the present that counts. Your life is not all about tomorrow. It may not be important that people remember you. You may not have people talking of you in the next generation. They may only remember your name, they may even forget that.
But today is important. This next 24 hours. Today you are chosen. You are part of the solution not the problem. You are here to serve others. Tomorrow you are not here and your name may even be fading in the memory of people. Not everyone is famous. Not everyone is talked about in the next generation. However, we are called to serve in the present generation. This is your moment now. Today is the day.
