There are instruments known as metronomes; that keep time for those who play instruments. There are jobs that require their employees to clock in and clock out. Those who participate in a marching band must know how to keep time with their instruments and their footsteps, or their performance will be a flop. A choir or praise team must be able to keep time; so the church will be blessed as they lead in worship. But God did not create us to be the slaves of a time-clock or of an oppressive schedule. He has redeemed us from slavery of every kind, including time. But it seems time is quite important.
"For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away." James 4:14
In reality, keeping time is critical for everyone involved. You see even God keeps time. He says we each have an appointed time to be born and an appointed time to die. What we accomplish in between; is imperative to His kingdom purposes.
The Ultimate Time Keeper is recording every nanosecond from your first breath until your last. One day we will give an account of how we spent our time.
What kind of timekeeper are you? Are you listening to the voice of The Time Keeper who does not want us to waste one more second? Are we in step with the Author and Finisher of our faith? We need to be the best time keeper possible; for His honor and glory.
