This past Sunday, Pastor Johnson preached a powerful message where he posed the question, "What Are You Doing With Your Time?". I think that the question is not only relevant, but actually a vital link in maximizing our faith in God. James 2:17 says that, "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."
**God has blessed us with the gift of time, but what are we doing with it? Some would say that we "waste it" or are "killing it". However I encourage us to "invest it" and "use it wisely".
By profession, I am an elementary-school teacher. On students' report cards, I have to grade them in a performance category that judges whether or not they "Make Wise Use of Time" based upon their works. If God were to grade you in that category, what do you think your grade would be? Would you get an "S+", "S", "S-" or an "N"?
Saints, we must work while it is day, for the day will come when no man can work. (John 9:4). Being that we have not yet reached perfection, there is still room for improvement with our use of time. Redeem the time at hand, because the days are evil...(Ephesians 5:16)
**Please note that "God has" should of course, be separated. However, after multiple attempts to try and correct this error, the words are still showing published as "connected" despite my corrections to the blog.
