For Lord’s January 22, 2012
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (Eph 5:14-16)
How can you redeem your free time, beloved? When God affords you moments, how will you maximize them for your good and His glory? Being that you live in the Spirit, how will you walk in the Spirit when you find opportunities at daily rest stops along the way? To exercise your faith unto bearing godly fruit? Make the most of your time. It will make your time most meaningful. And such a walk begins taking deliberate “baby steps”: He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. (Luke 16:10)
May you glorify God by redeeming your quiet times to make the most of the time you have (this could be your last hour on earth). Even within these dark days, it can be a glorious life to enjoy as you serve Christ’s kingdom deliberately, having promised to live within His promises.
