How Do You Use Your Time?

timeGod tells us to use our time “not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17). This means take great care in how you live. Live responsibly and wisely. Make the most of every minute by making the best use of your time.

As you think about your days and your use of time, try on these attitudes that will help you redeem your time:

  • Your time is your life, and you’re on assignment from God.
  • God has given you a purpose. He saved you so you can serve.
  • You are God’s workmanship, created in Christ for good works (Ephesians 2:10). Therefore,
  • Don’t be reckless with your days and hours. You can’t afford to make poor choices about how you spend time.

Here’s a principle to remember: You can never kill time without injuring eternity. Seek to use your golden, God-given minutes on what really matters.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
(Ephesians 2:10)

Power in Prayer

There are few things that can change a marriage the way prayer can. While I was an associate pastor, a couple came to my office for marriage counseling.

She explained through her tears that this was the first time in ten years of marriage that they had prayed together as a couple!
