Psalm 90:12 So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.

matthew 24Friends! we often complain about never enough time, we tell ourselves if there were only more hours in the day! But our problem is not that we don’t have enough time. Rather, our problem is we have not been convicted or transformed by the Holy Spirit.

Because once God’s Spirit has transformed our Character into the image of God our MISSION STATEMENT then becomes NOT MY WILL BUT THIN BE DONE. Then once we are CONVICTED to serve a “risen Savior,” then we begin to value our time only in relationship to Jesus Christ and Him Crucified, as we become PASSIONATE about spreading the good news of the gospel to all.

As our example, our Savior’s schedule was never so hectic that He lost FOCUS of His goal, there was never time lost in idleness in front of the TV, or gossiping to his disciples about the seven devils he cast out of Mary.

My friends Christ was always serving the needs of others, His agenda was always based on His mission and at the same time He was never so driven that He forgot about the passion of love, and How He treated everyone, even as Calvary approached.

My friends In Christ 33 years on this earth as He carried out His earthly ministry, “Jesus spent time praying, teaching, helping, healing and interacting daily with men and women from every social, educational, and economic class.”

So like Christ Their must be a PASSION for the use of our time and how we share the love of Christ, that impacts a world about-you1lost in sin. “For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.”John 13:15

My friends our time must not be centered on self. Our PASSION to serve must transcend into an urgency as we look at the closeness of Christ soon return. There is nothing in us, or of ourselves by which we can influence others for good, or use our time wisely because we are all shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive us Ps. 51:5

So once we do realize our helplessness and our need of God’s holy Spirit to guide us in how we spend our time. This is when we become the chosen vessel, and STEWARD’S OF GOD’S TIME that He intended for us to be.

“Life is too solemn to be absorbed in temporal and earthly matters, in a treadmill of care and anxiety for the things that are but an atom in comparison with the things of eternal interest. Yet God has called us to serve Him in the temporal affairs of life. Diligence in this work is as much a part of true religion as is devotion.

The Bible gives no endorsement to idleness. It is the greatest curse that afflicts our world. Time squandered can never be recovered. We cannot call back even one moment. The only way in which we can redeem our time is by making the most of that which remains, by being co-workers with God in His great plan of redemption.

imagesIn him who does this, a transformation of character takes place. He becomes a son of God, a member of the royal family, a child of the heavenly King. He is fitted to be the companion of the angels.” (Ellen G. White Christ’s Object Lessons)

My friends, One day God will question us about our time and say to each and everyone, EITHER “Well done, good and trustworthy servant! Since you’ve been trustworthy with a small amount, of time I’ll put you in charge of a large amount (Eternal life). Come and share your Master’s joy!”

OR, He will ask you, one final question, why was, the things of this world more important then studying my word and doing my will? And the saddest words we will ever here repeated, He will say, I KNOW YOU NOT In Ephesians 5:15-17 Paul states “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is”


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
