Invest Your Time - Don’t Just Spend It - Ephesians 5

Time is a most valuable commodity. Since it’s irreversible and irreplaceable, we ought to give careful consideration to how we spend our days—and even our minutes. Time is a gift from God. That means we are not owners but stewards and will one day be held accountable for how we used what was entrusted to us. According to verse 15, there are only two possible ways to live: wisely or foolishly.


Let’s first consider what is involved in using our time wisely. Those who realize that their days belong to God are careful how they live. Their goal is to understand the Lord’s will and align their schedules and activities with His purposes. As they seek guidance each day through intimate fellowship with Him in the Word and prayer, their spiritual eyes are opened to discern which opportunities are from the Father and which are not a part of His plans for them.


But those who are foolish do not give adequate thought to the way they live. Some become unproductive and lazy, living for their own pleasures while missing out on God’s purpose for their lives. However, others may be very busy and extremely successful by worldly standards, but if their days are occupied with activities that aren’t God’s will for them, they’re wasting their time.


To make the most of your opportunities, begin each day with the Lord, submitting to His will and asking that He direct your activities. After all, none of us want to get to heaven and discover that even though we’ve been busy spending our time,we have failed to invest it for eternity.



Upcoming Sermon Series
      This series will study the duty the Christian has to walk worthy of the great blessings they have been given. The characteristics of the worthy walk: humility, meekness, patience, love, and unity are presented to encourage you in your walk for Christ. This series will starts this coming Sunday.


Last Week:
      As Fathers and as men of God, we are called to be warriors for the Lord. We need to stop being passive in what we do. We need to have a cause to fight for, because when we don't we find the wrong thing to fight against, and we need to know when to fight.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      We will begin our new series of Walk Worthy. We hope to see you there!
