Time Management

Time Management

By Sean Sears on 9/9/18

SHARE:

How many times have you found yourself saying, “I just don’t have time”. It seems that nobody today actually has time. Everybody is so busy and life just never seems to slow down at all. Our culture has even turned busyness into a badge of honor that we wear as if our busyness equals significance. But you’ve been giving the same amount of time in a day as Michelangelo, Mother Theresa, and Albert Einstein. It’s what we are doing with our time is where the difference lies. In this week’s message, Pastor talks about how we don’t have a time management problem, we have a priorities problem. We want to grow closer to God, but we are unwilling to give up time and space in our lives to experience Him. And we certainly are too busy to think through our next step and what God is trying to prompt us to do next. So what needs to change if you find yourself stuck in a pattern of busyness and frustration; still struggling with the same old things. Check out this message from Pastor Sean to find out.

Message Notes

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Louis Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Theresa, Leonardo DeVinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

 

“Many things are not equal, but everyone gets the same 24 hours every day. You make time for what you want.”

 

I would also add that what you do with your time demonstrates what you really want, and what isn’t important to you.

 

Some of us are NO-TIME people. And some of us are PLENTY-OF-TIME.

 

Life Hack: Stop thinking about this in terms of time management. Think about it instead as a measure of priorities.

 

How do I live with a different priority?

Ephesians 5:1-20

  • Know the way Jesus lived.
  • Quit making excuses
  • Determine which choice would please the Lord
  • Find Godly mentors and peers
  • Which choice takes me further in the right direction?
  • Is this what God would choose?

 

What do I do if I’ve been doing it wrong?

 

Hebrews 10:10-14, 23-25.

 

  • I’m made holy by Jesus’ choice, not mine.
  • He accomplished the rescue of those who are in the process of “being made holy”.
  • I have not been made right with God by making good choices. BUT if I’ve been made right with God, I’ll start making better choices.
  • Hold tight to that, encourage each other to live differently because of that, and connect with each other more often so that it becomes easier to do that.

 

This is the same message that was preached in the first sermon.

Acts 2:37-38, 41-47

  • Turn from sin and be baptized.
  • Devote yourself to follow the teachings of the Bible.
  • Meet together in one place each week.
  • Meet in homes
  • Praise/Thank God no matter what happens.
