Redeeming The Time

Message text: Ephesians 5:15-16, Psalms 90:12, 1 Chronicles 12:32, Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, 2 Peter 3:9, Jeremiah 29:11, Joshua 10:9, 1 Kings 17:1,18:1
We are meant to live a purpose driven life. However, Satan steals time from us, the currency of life, disabling us to fully fulfill our purposes. Therefore, we have a debt of redeeming the time that we wasted not fulfilling our purpose.
We are to follow God and live in wisdom to redeem the time. Wisdom gives expression to your knowledge. Life is in seasons, that is why we need the understanding and wisdom of God to know where we are and what to do. Understanding also gives you command.
Our thoughts and words must be aligned with God's word to get revelation of what to do to live in our purpose. God is bigger than time so we can rely on Him to redeem time. Seasons can be shifted, accelerated and delayed by faith in God. By connecting to God and having faith in Him, we have command over seasons.

Christianity is a call to a life of sacrifice. Sacrifice is an act of laying down something of great value for something much more valuable. We need to be ready to lay down our dreams for God's dream which is bigger! The model of our lives, Jesus Christ made the biggest sacrifice in all eternity so that the sons of man can become the sons of God.
Sacrifice is not a loss, it engages the law of exchange - what you have for what God has promised therefore do not be sorrowful rather rejoice for great is the reward of those who sacrifice. Living a sacrificial life makes you a commander of atmospheres. You become ahead of your peers and the people around you due to this.
Your level of sacrifice for the works of God determines the returns you get in this life. Have a different mindset from those around you, sacrifice to God and let Him bring in returns of higher value into your life. Pay the price!
