Today and the Next day  

Today and the Next day

Luke 9:37 “The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.”

The next day is not today.

  • When you wake up to a next day then you know you are still on earth. You have come down the heavenly mountain to a large amount of work before you. Yesterday would serve for the next day. How will you live in your next day? Will what God has done or said today have any effect on your next day?


The next day is not today.

  • The next day you deal with the responsibilities of what was held in your today. Luke 10:35 “Thenext day he took out two denarii and gave them to the “Look after him,” he said, “and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.” The Good Samaritan kept to his commitments that he had made in the yesterday. Will you go back to the people and the places where you had previously made promises? The next day could cost you. Are you ready for that?


The next day is not today.

  • The next day is a continuance of your today which is pursuing your destiny in God. Luke 13:33 “In any case, I must press on today and tomorrow and thenext day – for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem!” Even the next day of Jesus’ life had another next day. Until the day came which the Father had ordained for Him to lay His life down. On that day there was no next day. It was just Today.


Next days are for earth only. Today is for the eternal home.

  • In your Today the Messiah can come to you. Luke 2:11 Todayin the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
  • In your Today miracles can happen. Luke 5:26 Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, ‘We have seen remarkable things today.’
  • In your Today salvation happens. Luke 19:9 Jesus said to him, ‘Todaysalvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.
  • Today heaven can call you home. Luke 23:43 Jesus answered him, ‘Truly I tell you, todayyou will be with me in paradise.’
  • Are you ready?


Yesterday a friend died, she never made it into her next day. She remains in the TODAY for ever and ever. I’m starting to notice I am losing more friends in my Today and I wake to the next day and I grieve. But those I grieve for are so happy in their TODAY.
