We are now in mid-November. It means that in just one month and a half we are going to enter a new year. Time flies, doesn’t it?
This reminds me of these verses in Ephesians 5:15-17:
15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Verse 16 says that we need to make the best use of the time. The fact is, time is a precious resource and, unlike money, we can’t get it back once it’s gone. That’s why it’s essential that we make the best use of the time.
But how can we do that? How can we make the best use of the time?
I believe that the key is in verse 17: understand what the will of the Lord is. If you want to make the best use of the time, you need to understand His will. You need to understand what He wants you to do. That’s how you can fit into God’s plan for you. That’s how you can be in His perfect will.
This is what the Scripture says in 1Peter 4:2:
so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.
We don’t have much time on Earth. So it’s important that we live the rest of our time for the will of God, not for human passions. And that’s why you need to understand what the will of God is.
May I ask you to do something? Make an effort to understand the will of God. How? By immersing in His Word and praying to Him.
If you do these, you will understand His will. And once you understand His will, do it. Put it into practice. That’s how you can make the best use of the time.
