Redeeming the Time

Average Life Expectancy in the United States = 78.8 yrs.

Did you know, that you can live to be 100 years old or even older in good health! Here in Montana we had a gentleman who lived 114 years! Isn’t that incredible! I’d like to propose a way to make the most of your time.

In 1 year we have:

  • 52 weeks
  • 365 days
  • 8,760 hours
  •  525,600 minutes
  • 31,536,000 seconds 
78.8 yrs.
                      x   525,600 min. per year
                           41,417,280 min. of life.
People tell me they don’t have time to speak the Word, or read the Word, or memorize verses. Okay, well I must admit, I did count ALL the time you get as a gift from God of life on this Earth. I should subtract the unproductive or sleeping time, let’s assume you sleep 8 hours in a typical 24-hour period. You would then have 5,840 hours every year, if you lived 78.8 years that equals;
 459,608 hours in your conscious, unsleeping life!

Imagine for a moment that you knew you had $459,608.00 in a bank account. That’s all you get. You’d want to invest right? A savvy financial investor told you, “________, (your name here please) you need to invest in a stock called the Bible and the renewed mind, it will make your current amount of $459,608.00 grow to $576,992.00!” 20 Years extra breathing life. Would you go for it? Sure you would!!

Every minute you spent renewing your mind gains you heavenly treasures to enjoy the rest of eternity!

Matthew 6:20-21 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Here’s the catch!

You live in the present. You have only the precious moment of “now” to walk this walk. Make the most of now, don’t look back that will waste your heavenly time!  It says in Ephesians 4:27; Neither give place to the devil. Don’t give him your time. Walk now in the strenth, truth, and accuracy of God’s Word. Here is our verse today in context. Beautiful isn’t it?

Ephesians 5:15-17 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil, 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, (with your time) but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 

2 Timothy 4:7-8; I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith, Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
