Ephesians 5:16 "Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."
All of us have become used to the name Daylight Savings Time, but there are only so many hours in a day, and changing the clock doesn't save time. But there is another type of Daylight Savings Time. Jesus said in John 9:4, "The night cometh when no man can work." The text tells us to literally "buy up" our opportunities. The only way we can save our working hours is to spend them in the service of God. The only money we save is the money we invest in the souls of men, and the only time we don't use it is the time we use it to the glory of God.
The Psalmist prayed, "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom." (Psalm 90:12). We sing that wonderful hymn, "Work For The Night Is Coming," but did you ever count up Him many hours in a day you spend on yourself and how little time for God and others?
It's time to save time. We can run up a good bank account of hours knowing Christ better and making Him known. It's not time spent but time gained, an investment, treasure laid up in Heaven. I'm not just talking about "full-time Christian service." Every Christian is called to full-time service. Aren’t we all supposed to live for Him all the time?
How much daylight have you saved by spending it on His glory?
