Sermons about Time
In becoming humble, and submitting to the authority of Christ, we commit ourselves to engaging in the work that God has planned for us. Each follower has been given certain gifts and circumstances in their lives that can lead to opportunities for displaying the Gospel. We must become faithful stewards, striving to glorify God more with the time and resources that we have, ready to give an account to the King.
Sometimes, perhaps not intentionally, we give the leftovers of our time, treasure, and talent to the Lord's work though the local church. When this happens, we subtly communicate that the mission to which Christ has called us isn't really worth the sacrifice. Paul offers a great corrective to this problem at the end of his teaching on Christ's resurrection and ours in 1 Corinthians 15. We must know the implications of the resurrection (for now and eternity), commit ourselves wholeheartedly to the Lord' s work (without being swayed by the philosophies of our culture), and pursue excellence together with God's people (convinced that the sacrifice is worth it).
As we celebrate Easter, it is important to remember that our Lord became our Savior out of necessity. As such, He is to be worshipped, adored and obeyed as the Savior AND Lord who is worthy of our talents, our treasures and especially our time.

Following Jesus is a long Journey. The scriptures remind us not to quit too soon. To keep taking small steps toward the path God has called us to. And eventually we will find our reward. Small Steps + Consistency + Time = Radical Difference
