Making the Most of Your Time

December 29, 2019 Speaker: Michael Knight Series: Current Sermon

Topic: Christian Growth Passage: Ephesians 5:15–5:16

The Apostle Paul encourages the reader in Ephesians 5:16-17 to walk as a wise person by making good use of his or her time. The new year is a great time to evaluate how you manage your time.

1. What does it mean to make the most of your time?

• Buying up the time, redeeming it, making wise and sacred use of every opportunity, as it were, from Satan and the world
• Making the right use of every opportunity to the glorifying of God

2. How do I make the most of my time?

• Realize the evil of not making the most of your time. (Job 21:13)
• Repent of the evil of not making the most of your time.
• Remove the obstacles and habits that prevent you from making the most of your time.
- Wrong Friends (Psalm 1:1-4)
- Materialism (Matthew 6:19-20)
- Fleshly Lusts (Romans 13:11-14)
- Laziness (Proverbs 19:15)
- Time Wasters (Colossians 3:2)
• Replace bad habits with good habits.
- Spend quality time with God. (Jeremiah 9:23-24)
- Spend quality time with your spouse.
- Spend quality time with your kids.
- Spend time witnessing to the lost.
- Spend time serving at your church.

3. Why must I make the most of my time? “The days are evil.”

• For your own sake
- So your life will count for eternity.
• For the sake of other people (Matthew 5:14-16)
• For the salvation of the lost and sanctification of the saved
