Thoughts & Prayers

Dear God
Please keep these folks in your prayers this week:

For healing: Please pray for all of those in our congregation who are dealing with health issues, and are traveling this fall season.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us
. - 1 John 5:15 (NIV)

Reflections: Stewarding Our Time

Categories: Message Reflections

Ephesians 5:15-21

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We never seem to have enough time. All of us are busy, there aren’t enough hours in the day to take care of all the things we need to have done. Often times it’s a struggle just to keep up with our daily activities. Time is a very limited resource, and the longer we live, the more we realize how short our lives really are. As Christians, we must invest our time for spiritual rather than earthly gains. We must steward our time. Let’s remember these two points from Pastor Terry’s sermon:
  1. Our time is valuable, so we must invest it wisely
  2. Stewarding our time means we understand that time is God-given

Reflection Questions:

Please read and think about each question as it applies to your Christian journey with Christ.
  • What do you believe is the best way to steward our time for Christ? What does stewardship of time mean for you?
  • What are some ways you have been stewarding your time; i.e. growing your faith, working for God’s ministry, etc.?

Prayer:

Lord, thank you for the wonderful gift of time. You are in control of all things, including how much time we have here in this world. Help us make the best use of our remaining time, for your kingdom and your glory. Let us use our time wisely and faithfully, in service to you. Amen.

Across the Connection

hurricane matthew-lynn-haven-umc-main-art-copy
United Methodists across the southeast are preparing to offer long-term relief after the most powerful hurricane in nearly 50 years slammed into the continental U.S.
Michael, which roared onto the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 hurricane, has left a path of destruction across multiple states and at least five United Methodist conferences. The storm has caused at least 11 deaths — four in Florida, five in Virginia, one in Georgia and one in North Carolina and in its wake are upturned trees, collapsed buildings, broken roads and hundreds of thousands of people without electricity.
