How to Use Our Time

Ephesians 5:6-21

The way we use our time reveals our values and priorities. Ephesians 5:16 encourages us to make the most of our time. Here are ways to do this:

Receive Christ as Savior. The only way you can live a life of truth, meaning, and abundance is by personally knowing Jesus Christ.

Pray. The greatest timesaver is prayer. Jesus recognized that His most valuable and productive use of time occurred when He was alone with the Father. As you seek God’s will, prayer acts as a compass in your life.

Discover God’s plan for you, and live accordingly. A believer who knowingly sins or walks outside of God’s will can expect to be unproductive and unfulfilled. You can’t maximize your effectiveness if you’re struggling against God or have become hardened to His voice.

Write a mission statement for your life. Ask the Lord about His desires for you, and think about how you can use the rest of your earthly life to bring Him glory. If you pray for God’s guidance and for ears to hear His voice, you’ll find He will make the most of your time.
