Our Time in View of Eternity 以永恆的眼光看時間


“My life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus”

~Acts 20:24 (NLT)~


Jesus lived only 33 years but he accomplished the will of God in that short time. As Christians, we need to become more and more like Christ as we mature. Therefore we need to use our time in view of eternity.


Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time.

~Colossians 4:5 (ESV)~


Our life must be lived in light of eternity, making the best use of our time. Time is our most precious resource. It’s far more important than money. We can always make more money, but we can’t make more time. We can’t borrow time. We can’t extend time. We are all allotted a certain amount of time.

The only thing we can do with time is use it. We all have the same amount of time every week: 168 hours. We need to manage our time wisely. God is watching how we manage our time on earth and our reward in heaven will be determined by how we manage our time on earth.


Satan’s desire is to get us so busy doing unimportant things that we do not have time for the important things in life. Make sure you invest your time in light of eternity. Ask yourself, “How much of what I’m spending my time is going to count five years from now? How much is going to count for eternity?

You have 365 days in front of you in 2021. How will you use your time in view of eternity?


除非我成就了主耶穌基督所指派我的事,否則我的生命毫無價值。 ~徒20:24譯自NLT

(我卻不以性命為念,也不看為寶貴,只要行完我的路程,成就我從主耶穌所領受的職事,證明 神恩惠的福音。徒20:24和合本)

耶穌只活了33年,但祂卻在這麼短的時間內成就了上帝的旨意。身為基督徒的我們,需要不斷成長,以致越來越像基督,因此我們必須為了永恆來運用我們的時間。

你們要愛惜光陰,用智慧與外人交往。 ~歌羅西書4:5

我們必須以永恆的眼光來生活,充分運用我們的時間。時間是我們最寶貴的資源,比金錢重要得多。我們總是可以賺取更多的錢,但是我們不能賺取更多的時間。我們不能借用時間,也無法延長時間。每個人都被分配好一定的時間。

我們唯一能做的就是使用時間。每週我們都有相同的時間─168小時。我們需要有智慧地管理自己的時間。上帝在看我們如何管理我們在地上的時間,而我們在天上的獎賞取決於我們在地上的時間管理。

撒但總想讓我們忙於不重要的事,沒有時間處理生命中的重要事情。因此,你務必要將時間投資在永恆。問自己:「從現在開始到五年後我有多少時間?有多少是可以存到永恆的?」

2021年你將有365天的時間,你要如何運用自己的時間?你所做的事多少關乎永恆?
