WHAT DO WE LOSE WHEN WE FAKE IT BY JUST PLAYING CHURCH?
Jesus Christ warns us that we will lose our rewards at His Judgment Seat if our time we were given on earth to invest in His Church is wasted.
The whole message of Paul to the Corinthians was invest in Christ’s Church (1st Corinthians 3:5-18). His message is about building our life upon the foundation of Christ by serving His Church. When we fail to do that our time is wasted, whatever else we do with our life just burns up, and turns to soot and ashes!
God has a big plan for you and me in His Church; He wants us to make something out of the time He gives us by investing it in His Church.
Time like electricity flows around us and remains unseen and useless–unless it is captured and harnessed into usefulness.
A lifetime for each of us contains a lot of time.
Jesus left a long list of things to do with our time, while He was away building a home for us. That list is the New Testament. In the New Testament, we find three broad categories of our responsibilities.
o Evangelism: is the part of the list that involves going and making disciples all over the world for His Church.
o Consecration: is another part of that list, and is all about each of us individually staying in His Word, staying close to Him, and staying away from sin.
o Fellowship is the rest of that list, and is all about our responsibilities to the other members of Christ’s family. And that happens to be the vast majority of all that the New Testament instructs and commands us to do.
Each day a river of time flows all around us. When life is measured in minutes it can be seen as a constant flow of time traveling by us minute by minute.
