If you heard the talk on Sunday you might remember my fascination with the phrase at the end of Colossians 4:5 – “redeeming the time”. I was having coffee with a small group leader this morning and he mentioned an extra dimension to the phrase that I hadn’t yet noticed: we need to be investing time now in such a way that will reap a greater reward in eternity. BRILLIANT! There are only two things we can do with time, waste it – failing to invest wisely, or redeem it – investing for eternity, the ultimate investment.
I think that’s incredibly exciting!
