REDEEMING THE TIME

“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.”

Colossians 4:5

 

Every time we spend with an unbeliever should not be wasted on frivolity, but ceased as an opportunity to preach the Goodnews of salvation to them.

This is why we must be conscious of our interactions in our workplaces, neighbourhoods, and with every other person we meet in the corridor of life.
I read the story of a young lady who was known for her bad character in the compound where she lived. One fateful day she came to that neighbourhood with her church team for evangelism. Sadly, she couldn’t enter her compound with them to witness to her neighbours because of her horrible character.

Do you see how she wasted her opportunity?¬†Bear in mind that, once you declare that you are for Jesus, all eyes are on you. That’s why you must be a good representative of the gospel at all times.
Evangelism can be verbal, as well as by our character and conduct. Therefore, deal wisely with everyone around you because you don’t know who will make the decision to be eternally saved just by the things you do around them.

Charge: Make every opportunity you get to share the gospel count.

Further Study: 1 Thessalonians 4:12, Ephesians 5:15-16.

Stay blessed, Beloved.
