Time is tick'n

If you are a young person, you need to read this post:

I've been reading "Don't waste your Life" by John Piper lately, and the main thing to do to not waste your life, is to "...glorify God in your body..." and enjoy doing it.

Many times as young people we ask, "what do you want to do when you grow up?" Or what are you going to do to glorify God?" But I ask you, what are you doing now to glorify God? We are in our "best years" what are we doing now to glorify God, hmm? Are we being servants? Are we sharing the gospel? I also have to ask, what am I doing to glorify God? So instead of putting it off, "oh, when I have a job I'll glorify God," 'when I am married, I'll glorify God." No! We need to do it now! Do something! Go serve some way! Time is tick'n guys!

All Christ,

Amen! As for the point about glorifying God when we get married, read 1 Cor. 7. Now we can serve God without any distractions and just throw ourselves into His work. I heard once that we spend so much time worrying about the future and miss a perfectly good present. We think so much about when we'll be in the mission field, that we forget to serve Him where we are. I often ask, "God, what do you want me to do?" The answer is always the same. Love Jesus, learn more about Jesus, live for Jesus, serve Him in all you do, fall in love with Jesus, and when you've done that, I can use you for great things.

Thanks for sharing.

You threw the lamb?!! Those pictures are hilarious. Great job doing it yourself though.

What a thought provoking post - we often think so far ahead! What about now?? This is our mission field - this is where God has planted us for now and we need to be bright lights for HIM and not just brush this important period of our lives to the side!

I agree entirely. I believe that while we should think about the future, we should not think about the future whilst doing nothing in the present. Many times the places we are tend to be are as good a mission field as any other.

Thanks guys... so uhh... what are you doing?! Get off the computer, and go do something! ;)

I'm serious.

We often speak of Christian who quit their jobs to become involved in serving God as people "entering full-time ministry." In reality we need to recognise that the moment a person becomes a Christian, he is entering "full time Christian ministry." If God has given us the gift of speaking, we are to use it for his glory. If God has given us the gift of writing, we are to use it for his glory. Whatever gift God has given us, we are to use for his glory from the point of our salvation till the day we die.

seems to me that this comment is most vital to an old person, who has very little time left.
Of course none of us know how much time we have left which makes it important for all believers.
