"Redeem the Time"

Redeem The Time
“From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:16

    
God has placed us in a world that operates on time. He placed lights in the heavens for times and seasons, and these are unchangeable. We live in a time oriented world. Day will become night, today will be come tomorrow, and summer will give way to autumn. Life is moving at a constant, steady pace. God has ordained this plan. Therefore,time is a valuable commodity, and falls under the Christian's responsibility of stewardship.
    Most people make a life-crippling mistake when it comes to time management. These people choose the spend life in the past, or in the future. Neither of these places exist in time. When one chooses to live this way he has chosen to waste today. The past can never be revisited, and tomorrow is always within reach. To leave each day regretting the one before, or wishing for a better one to come is foolish! Our days are what we make them, and the time we have now must be used to build upon yesterday to make a better tomorrow. Let us march forward through life using the moment we have before us to do something productive. Don't waste the "now" on the "when". If you have made a mess of your life till now, don't waste today with regrets, utilize today to change your direction. Also, don't use today to dream of a better tomorrow. Tomorrow's are the product of today!
     Remember Paul's words, "this one thing I do,forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark." These words are the equivalent to a "you are here" sign. Take a moment to realize you have been wandering through this life, and look at the "you are here" sign. As you do, ask the Lord where He wants you to be, and begin using the time of today to start the trip. Be a good steward of your time!
