Living On God's Time

Posted on February 25, 2015.

There are twenty-four hours in a day, seven days in a week and 52 weeks in a year. No matter how you add it up everyone on planet earth has the same amount of time. So how is it that some have the time to be in Sunday School and worship services each week and others do not? I know that some people have to go to work during church hours but very few work both Sunday morning and Sunday evening. Yes, we do have worship services on Sunday nights.

Some say they would come to Sunday School but it starts too early. Sunday School starts at 9:15 a.m.; a time much later than most people go to work or school during the week. The real question about one’s worship habits has more to do with how much that person loves and respects God instead of how little time is in their schedule. A person gets up to be on time at work or school because they understand the importance of it to their lives. If one truly loves and respects Jesus, they will make the necessary arrangements to be present for studying His word and worshiping in His house. The reality is that people make time for what is really important to them. The scripture says that we are to “redeem the time.” No matter what else those words may mean, they tell us we are to put God first in our schedules. That means we do not attend Sunday School and worship services because we don’t have anything else to do during those hours. We purposely clear our schedules yielding to what God would have us do, making sure God is in control of all of our time. In this way we bring Glory to God in His time.
