REDEEM THE TIME
Making the very most of your time [on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence], because the days are [filled with] evil. Therefore do not be foolish and thoughtless, but understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is.
Do not get drunk with wine, for that is wickedness (corruption, stupidity), but be filled with the [Holy] Spirit and constantly guided by Him.
Ephesians 5:16-18 AMP
Each one of us has been given 24 hours a day. No nation under the sun has more hours than others but still some nations are super rich and others are very poor. It is the same when it comes to individual levels; some people are super rich while others are very poor. There are many factors that can contribute on this but there is a single factor that we all have given in common which is time. We will have a short Time Series for the coming couples of day. I believe God will talk with us through His word concerning time.
Everything that takes place in our lives is bound in time. There are some things that you will never experience them until their time comes. When their times come, they will last according to their time frame and go away. That is why as much as we like to remain young and active always. There will reach a point that we will need to accept and embrace the fact that youth hood don't last forever; and old age is waiting for us in the next exit of life freeway!
It is important for us to learn the act of making the most of every opportunity in life. There are some opportunities that don't come twice; even if they come twice they won't be the same as they came before. People of this world, know how to redeem the time than the sons of light. It is about time the church learns the act of redeeming the time knowing the days are of evil.
This morning, I want to remind you to redeem the time. The time you have with your loved ones is limited. Make sure you show them love and help them whenever you can that you may not have regrets when they are gone. You have a day that have 12 hours, make sure you work and maximize every second of it if you want to be successful in life.
You have been given this life to develop your relationship with your Creator. Don't wait the lasts minutes of your life that you may come back to God. You may never know when will be your last day on this earth. The time to repent and reconcile with God is now, don't wait for tomorrow or give sin a chance to control your life. We are going to continue with this Time Series tomorrow, may God bless you!
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to redeem the time that I may make the most of every opportunity that will come in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
