How to Redeem Time

The only day we can redeem is today (Isa 49:8; Mat 6:30-33; 2Co 6:2), and throughout Scripture we are continually exhorted to listen to God today (Exo 17; Psa 90,95,106; 1Co 1-10; Heb 3). Every morning God lays before each of us 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, and gives us the opportunity to buy out as much of that time as we want to for eternity. Every minute we spend in fellowship, filled with the Spirit, belongs to us forever; every minute we are out of fellowship is lost. 

To buy time we have to have capital; our capital is the Word of God, Everything comes to us from the Word (Mat 4:4; 2Ti 3:16), and the Word is the only thing we will take with us from this realm into eternity (Psa 90:12).

  1. Be filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18)
  2. Study (Rom 12:2; 2Pe 3:18)
  3. Apply the Word (Col 4:5; 1Pe 2:15)
  4. Endure/Wait (Isa 40:31; Rom 8:18; Jam 1:2; 1Pe 1:7, 1Pe 2:19-21, 1Pe 3:14-18, 1Pe 4:1)
  5. Pray (Eph 6:18; Heb 13:15; Jam 5:13-18)
  6. Submit (Eph 5:21)
  7. Serve (1Ti 4:14; 1Co 12:7,11; 1Co 13)
