Topic: REDEEM YOUR TIME
Text: Ephesians 5: 15-16
📖15….”See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
📖16….Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
🔥To redeem is to buy back time that was once lost as a result of unseriousness, ignorance, headiness, peer pressure, etc. This is why Apostle Paul said in 1 Cor 13: 11 that childish behaviours should be done away with at adulthood. If one doesn’t take cognizance of time, he will clash with Ecclesiastes 3:1 which says that to every purpose under the sun, there is a time and a season. This is why we shouldn’t be anxious about tomorrow. A lot of people put away what they ought to do today till tomorrow as they did yesterday; thereby over crowding tomorrow that will never come.
🔥🔥Remember that when God created all that is in the world today, he didn’t create tomorrow. So, any dependence on tomorrow, is a colossal waste. Hence we need to buy back lost moments of the past. One can only redeem the time if he puts away childish things. After David killed Goliath as a youth, he was given a wife – the king’s daughter. When he became an adult and king, instead of going to battle (2 Sam 11: 1-4), he killed Uriah to have another wife (Bathsheba). If God had not saved him from Nabal in 1 Sam: 25: 13, 17, 34, he would have also killed Nabal to have Abigail.
🔥🔥🔥This chain followed David because he refused to redeem the time. He failed to accept that the time and season for such unholy behaviour was past; and it was time to go forth to battle. Child of God, you have a better time and season now. Don’t ruin it by careless, riotous and unrealistic living.
🙏O Lord, restore to me the years I wasted in ignorance and youthful exuberance in Jesus’ Name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, I know there is a place in you called the cleft of the rock. Put me there and Transform me as you did to Moses when you put him there in Jesus’ Name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, help me to use the little time I have to serve you and secure eternity for myself, judiciously and prudently, in Jesus’ name.
