Redeeming the time
Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Redeem from Greek “exagorazo” meaning: to buy up, ransom, to rescue from loss, improve opportunity.
Wasting the time that the Lord has given is foolish!
Ephesians 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
Wake up and realize your time is measured!
Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Slothfulness is a time waster!
Proverbs 18:9 He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.
Romans 12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
Wisdom to use time Wisely
Colossians 4:5-6 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. 6 Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Making up for lost time
Romans 13:11-14 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
The Best use of our time
Ephesians 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Thank the Lord for the time that he gives!
