Ephesians 5:15-16 – “Wise Or Foolish?”

RE-POST FROM JUNE 21, 2011

Ephesians 5:15-16-Wise or Foolish?

After receiving so much correspondence from people about the ungodly, unwise and foolish choices that are being made by their family members, friends, neighbors, coworkers, children and grandchildren, I felt compel to repost this again today.

Ephesians 5:15-16-Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

These words written by Apostle Paul were written to Christians, through the direction of God the Father, are good advice for all of us. These words are medicine for our soul.

Paul reminds us on today that we are the best reflectors to others of what a Christian should be. We are Christ Ambassadors here in the earth. The LIFE we live, the WORDS we speak and the SERVICE we render will reveal to others the kind of Christians we really are. It will also reveal who we represent ; God or Satan.

A “wise” man fears and departs from evil, making the most of his or her time here on earth. We know our life is just a vapor that appeareth for a little while and then vanishes. Here today and gone tomorrow.

Are you willing to reach forward and not look back to the sinful pleasures of this world on today? Are you willing? If not, what is the price you are willing to pay for your soul?

2 Timothy 1:9 says–For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was His plan from before the beginning of time–to show us His grace through Christ Jesus.

If we as Christians are to begin to live the way God desires us to live, we must EXHIBIT the WISDOM of God, which is found in the Word of God. We must be on constant alert about how we are conducting ourselves, not as unwise people, but as wise people.

Why should we make the most of our time? Because the days are evil. Look around the world. Take a look at the newspaper, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, etc. Evil is present everywhere. We can bring it home! Look at our schools, neighborhoods, homes, communities, families and on and on.

While there are many reasons why one should make the most of their time, perhaps the best reason, is because God commands us to do it.

The question of how to make the most of our time is why we need Divine Wisdom from God. Knowledge tells you stuff, and it is important – but wisdom tells you how to use knowledge profitably. Divine Wisdom from the Holy Spirit not only tells you how to make the most of time, it also teaches us what the will of the Lord is and then give us the power to do it..

Remember: Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

The danger is that some of what has become normal to us is actually quite insane if you take a step back and look at things.

Today I want all of us, including me, to take a good look at the life we are living. If it is a life of the “Unwise”, take a look at the way you are driving or being driven around and recognize that it is not God at the steering wheel.

After your drive, where will your final destination be?? HUMMMM!!!

GOD BLESS AND DO TELL THE LORD THANK YOU!!!!

I love you all with the love of Christ!

About Minister Aiken

I am a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I received my call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 16, 2003 and I was licensed as a Minister on Sunday, December 30, 2007. I am an Associate Minister, Sunday School Teacher for Adult # 1 Class, Instructor for New Members Class, Youth Church Teacher, Senior Missionary, and Blogger. I have worked in the medical field for 31 years. I am the wife of one husband whom I have been married to for the last 27 years. Out of this union came one son. I have always been an advocate of God's Word even prior to salvation. Now that I am saved, I have taken it to another level with the help of the Holy Spirit. I am what others call "Radicle for Christ!" Yes, I LOVE JESUS! I started sending out daily devotional messages over 12 years ago via email. In March of 2011 the Lord told me that it was time for the daily devotionals to be taken to the world wide web. I did not understand how nor belive that God could use me for such a task as this, but thanks be to God who knows all things. I obeyed God and the rest was history. This ministry has truly been a blessing to the heart and soul of many that are saved and unsaved. Many lives have been changed, energized, transformed, restored, refreshed, and clansed by the Power of the Holy Spirit through God's spoken words from His Bible. Romans 10:14-15 - How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15-And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Truly, this Ministry is a blessing from God to mankind everywhere. No great works has any man done that he or she should boast! "TELL THE LORD THANK YOU" is indeed the Lord's will for you and I. God truly is an "AWESOME WONDER!" I love Him!! He is my Lord and Savior!!! Romans 8:31- If God be for you, who could be against you? It was Christ who died for us. 1 Thessalonian 5;18-Give thanks in all things for this is the Lord will concerning you and I in Christ Jesus. Matthew 6:33-But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
