Time is precious. We are not on this earth very long. One day you start to flip the switch and turn the light on, but you find the bulb is shot. This will happen in life.
So, each of us should seek to make the most of the time that we have. We can do this by making most of our walk with God. James 4:14-16 asks the question, “What is your life?” He goes ahead to say among other things that it is a vapor that appears for a short time and then vanishes into the air.
Many people live carelessly without giving much thought to their relationship with God, yet the Bible says that we must all one day stand before God and give an accounting of our life (Hebrews 9:27).
Will God receive us as a forgiven child or will he be our judge? That is a question that we can settle here and now.
To make the most of your walk with God, it is essential that you know Christ as your lord and savior. Apart from Christ there is no walk with God.
If you are a Christian, you want to make the most of your walk with God. Don't be a careless Christian, but one who seeks to know more about and grow closer to Christ each day.
Psalm 1 is a plea for a deeper and more productive walk with God. The Psalmist calls the person who has a close walk with God “blessed.” I want to challenge you to read and meditate on Psalm 1. As you do see how the Psalmist leads you to look around, look inside and to look forward.
The Lord willing, next week I want to offer some suggestions to make our walk “blessed.”
