Use Your Time To The Glory of God

Reference Scripture: Mark 4: 8 and 20

God has a big plan for you and me; He wants us to make something out of our time. Time like electricity flows around us and remains unseen and useless — unless it is captured and harnessed into usefulness.

Fruit is what is produced by my life that will last forever – prayers from a clean heart, worship from a consecrated life, time lived under the direction of the Holy Spirit, acts of devotion prompted by love, souls won to Christ, saints edified, suffering endured for Him, sacrifices made for Him. And on and on we could go. The emphasis is ‘that which lasts forever produced by my life.

Life for each of us contains a lot of time. Each day a river of moments flows all around us, eighty-six thousand seconds to be exact. But if measured in minutes life can be seen as a constant flow of time traveling by us minute by minute.

According to what Jesus said in the verses before us, all that will last of your and my life on Earth will be the fruit that you and I produce while we are alive on this planet. Everything else of ours — will burn, rust, or rot. Have you paused lately and looked around all that fills up each of our lives?

Everything we ever have will turn to rust and ashes except for what was transformed by our ABIDING in Christ into Eternal Fruit. Christ’s rewards to us are based on what was GOOD or fruitful, all else attached to our lives Jesus Christ has promised He will burn away.

Mark 4:8, 20 “But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.” 20 But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.”
