Time is A Valuable Eternal Commodity
But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. (Luke 12:45-48 KJV)
Are you a good steward of the time God has allotted you? Are you using it for His glory and honor or serving your self-interest? God will redeem every second man has spent upon this earth. All mankind will give an account to God for how he has spent the time He graciously appropriated to him. God has clearly warned us He will come back to earth suddenly. He will appear, and mankind will be surprised by His unexpected arrival. This warning is to keep us in spiritual check. The time we have been given is from God and is not for us to reason with and do as we please.
Did you know God has already preordained, or determined a will for every man’s life? God will never collar man into following His holy blueprint for his life. God desires the regenerate man will naturally yearn to follow His narrow pathway choosing to live in agreement with His will. Those who are aligned with the god of this world will dart off in an opposing direction fueled by their own self-will.
God does reward those who choose to live in obedience to His will. However, He must also swiftly discipline and chastise anyone who readily chooses to align their life to the agenda of the god of this world.
Every decision and action made upon this earth is either for modeling Christ to this world. Or is used for supporting the evil agenda of god. Man will be called into account for every second of his personal use of God’s valuable time.
