2 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

Ephesians 5:15-17 (NLT)
So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.

Redeeming the time…
Exagorazó: To buy up; to ransome

“We are commanded to be time redeemers, those who reclaim our time from useless pursuits and employ it to the glory of God.”- Jen Wilkin

Ephesians 5:15-17 (NLT)
So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.

Do be careful how you live…
Don’t live like fools…

Do make the most of every opportunity…

Don’t act thoughtlessly…

Do understand what the Lord wants you to do…

If our time is not “our” time - but time that has been entrusted to us by God - how does he want us to invest our time?

More vs Most

Love and hurry are incompatible.

“Love is patient.”

Ephesians 5:15-17 (NLT)

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.

(1) Assimilating to a culture of busyness and overload…

(2) God becoming more marginalized…

(3) A deteriorating relationship with God…

(4) Becoming even more vulnerable to adopting secular assumptions about how to live…

(5) More conformity to a culture of busyness, hurry, and overload.


We don’t work for peace.

We work from peace.
