Pits to Purpose – TIME! What you do with your time is important

Pits to Purpose – Jett Life Ministries
TIME! What you do with your time is important
When I was in college, a friend from the football team turned me on to the music of the Cars. One of their songs was; “Just what I needed.” One of the verses says; “I don’t need you comin’ here and waisting all my time, time!”
Boy, did I live that song verse that year. I am embarrassed to admit that I played and partied more than I went to class and I got 5 credits out of 16 during my winter quarter and that made me ineligible to play baseball. The main reason I went to college.
 
Now many of you might not spend your time on such wasteful things but you spend it on things you value more than time with God. Many people want God in their lives. They want what God can give them and do for them but God is looking for a relationship with you far greater than you might have thought. Some of you might even be “doing” good things for God but missing the relationship part!
 
The Apostle Paul thought he was doing great things for God, but missed that Jesus was the one true Messiah. After He had a personal encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus (read Acts 9), here is what Paul said about the time and the things he previously focused on.
 
“But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. 10 I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.” Philippians 3:7-11
 
Your relationship with God will come alive like you’ve never experienced when you begin to give your time to God daily through reading the Bible, meditating on the verses, praying, listening for His voice and even journaling what God is saying to you and doing it.
 
Time brings intimate Knowledge of God, Knowing His ways, His will, His direction and purpose for you by the day! You think you’ve been living life now? Wait until you dive into a deeper relationship with Jesus! Are you on the diving board yet?
 
If you need help diving in, private message me and I will help you take the fulfilling plunge.
