Choose Jesus Today

Jesus said, " I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." John 14:6

Wake Up and Stop Wasting Time!

How do you spend your time? Are you being productive for the Lord?  What did you accomplish today? Tomorrow will be here quicker than you have any idea. 

King Solomon knew first-hand how important it was to be productive by spending time wisely. He wrote the book of Proverbs, which talks about living a life filled with wisdom and understanding. In Proverbs 6:9-11, he talks about wasting time and the consequences of being lazy and accomplishing nothing. Are you accomplishing anything good with your time?

As an old man, Solomon looked back over his life and realized that he spent a great deal of time storing up treasures and living for himself. As a result, he turned away from the Lord. In the book of Ecclesiastes, also written by King Solomon, he says in chapter 12:13-14 that we should fear the Lord and keep his commandments above all else. He turned back to the Lord and came to the realization that regardless of all his riches, it meant nothing if he did not have the Lord in his life.

Wasting time does not bring glory to the Lord. Colossians 3:17 says “[A]nd whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of Lord Jesus Christ.” Think about this scripture the next time you decide to sleep all day, watch TV for hours, play video games, or anything else that takes time away from being productive for Jesus. There is nothing wrong with doing any of those things in moderation; however, time is short, and once it is gone you cannot get it back.

Ephesians 5:16 says to make the most of your time because the days are evil.  We are living in the last days, and Jesus is soon to come. Wickedness is all around us, and we do not have time to be disobedient. Only what we do for Jesus will last.  Make a commitment right now to make better use of time for the Lord.

Choose to stop wasting time and Choose Jesus right now and every day.
