Today’s Message: Redeem the Time



Today’s Scripture

“So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.”
(Ephesians 5:15–16, NLT)

Redeem the Time

Time is the most valuable commodity that we have in life. It’s more valuable than money. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you woke up this morning, God gave you a present called “today.” And with that gift comes a responsibility. The scripture tells us to redeem the time, to make the most of every opportunity. That simply means don’t let it go to waste. Don’t live this day unfocused, unhappy, negative or defeated. Make the most of every day. God has entrusted you with His life. He has breathed His very breath into you. He has put gifts and talents on the inside of you. You have seeds of greatness deposited in you. You’re a person of destiny, and you have an assignment and a purpose to fulfill!

I encourage you today to evaluate how you are spending your time. Refocus your life. Let go of any distractions. Shake off any self-pity, any discouragement, any disappointments of the past and run your race with purpose. Be careful how you live and redeem the time so that you can fulfill the destiny He has prepared for you.

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for the gift of today. I dedicate this day to You. I dedicate my mind, will and emotions to You. Use me this day for Your purposes and keep me on the path You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”


  1. We should always pray for all these ‘men of God’ and their followers…instead of feeding the sheep the shepherd is selling and eating the sheep.

    • “When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called a Religion.”
      – Robert M. Pirsig

  2. There are more churches in Zambia than the entire EU nations combined but sadly

    Zambia is among the most corrupt nation on earth.

    it is one of the most wicked, dishonest, unloving uncaring country; ask the pensioners, visit the clinics or listen to komboni radio.

    Church going does not change an individual or a nation

  3. “Religion is like a pair of shoes…..Find one that fits for you, but don’t make me wear your shoes.”
    ? George Carlin

  4. “All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.”
    – Edgar Allan Poe

  5. Awesome message! The Devil will always try to remind us of our failures but God gives us hope of a new beginning. Amen!

  6. Comment: Isn’t it interesting that these anti-religion bloggers took time to read the article the ABOUt RELIGION?!!
    If you are atheists worth your salt why are you taking the trouble to read RELIGIOUS stuff? Ummm! Just my thoughts

  7. Go and read up on why Europeans came to you and the PRIMARY objective of evangelism in Africa, South America, North America, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Then ask yourself why it is that EVERY SINGLE ETHNIC GROUP that those missionaries encountered fell victim to slavery, colonization and in some cases near or absolute extinction. This is why of all races on the surface of the earth, Africans are the most stupid!!?

  8. Encouraging,motivating and teaching words,thnx for the word of God,atleast I pick something out of it
    Pliz don’t comment negatively on anything even when it is independently, it may be dangerous to our spiritual life
    You better leave it blank if you have nothing to say,you ll loose nothing.
