[Shepherding the sheep with One heart ] Use the Limited Earthly Life Frugally

  • 2017.07.31 10:27


The way for each person to use the time given by the Lord is different. This is because people's social standing or status are different, and our environments and lives are different. But whoever we are, we should center ourselves around Jesus and use the time preciously for the time of soul.


Given a certain amount of money, some people would eat two eggs a day and make the money last for 16 days. However, another person would eat a pizza with the same money and starve the next day. The former person is wiser than the latter. The days of my flesh that I can use are also limited. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit in order to use the years of the flesh with great effect until the day when we meet God,


How can we praise God with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs while our lives continue to be unpleasant and upset? Worldly people love the cravings of sinful man, the lusts of the flesh and to spend their time luxuriously. They are excited and enjoy these things, even though they are committing sin.


But God promised to save us from such perdition, and forgave us our sins through His loving son, healing our sickness, freeing us from our curse, and forgiving our transgressions. And the Holy Spirit came to the soul that repented and was sanctified, and made him live by trusting in Jesus.


Likewise those who have received God’s grace and eternal life will always speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. They will sing and make music in their heart to the Lord.
