The easiest thing to do is to waste time. Time is wasted in so many ways. Scanning Facebook and Twitter can be a waste of time. Laboring over the news of the day (most of it negative and bad) can be a waste of time. Worrying about what might happen tomorrow is a tremendous waste of time and energy.
How can we use time more effectively as Christians? A very smart man suggested the following New Year’s Resolutions:
- PRAY MORE. 2. READ AND STUDY THE BIBLE MORE. 3. FOCUS ON GOD MORE. 4. LOVE OTHERS MORE.
Those who obeyed the gospel at Peter’s preaching at Pentecost did these things and they became sharpened tools the Master could use to grow disciples at an amazing rate. If we could do the same, we could improve ourselves AT LEAST in devotion to God.
Remember: “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers,” (Acts 2:42). They CONTINUED STEADFASTLY, they were continually devoted to these important things. Shouldn’t we?
