The book of James makes it clear that our life “…is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14). God has called us to be ‘redeeming the time’ (Eph. 5:16; Col. 4:5) that He has given to us. Our prayer in response to God’s call to ‘redeem the time’ ought to be like that of the Psalmist who prayed- “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Ps. 90:12).
Charles Spurgeon wisely said that “No man ever served God by doing things tomorrow.”
If we are going to serve Christ, today is the day to work, to serve, to learn, to grow, and to share the glorious Gospel message with others! Let us not be guilty of ‘wasted time’! The time if ticking on, so let us labor for our Master while we can!
