Eph. 5:15-17 So be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do.
Only a fool would live a life contrary to a life he knows to be true from God. If we believe that God has spoken to us in his Word and that is unchangeable truth, it makes absolutely no sense at all to ignore it and do what we want to do in life. Wisdom would tell us to be careful how we live in light of what God tells us. It is a very dangerous thing to jeopardize our souls by ignoring God’s clear instructions on how to live.
We need to make the most of every opportunity we have to learn how to live out our faith through His Word. We need to always seek to discover more about ourselves so we can align ourselves up with God’s standards. We need to see ourselves in need of more and more knowledge from Him.
We need to make the most of every opportunity we have to do good. We live in very troublesome times. Evil is everywhere and its getting more and more of a stronghold in the public arena. It is imperative for the sake of souls that we don’t mess around and pass up opportunities we are given to bring Christ into the mix by doing good.
We need to give careful thought to what the Lord wants us to do. It is so easy to mess up our opportunities by acting in ways contrary to the Lord’s desires for us. He knows best what we can and should be doing. We should always strive to understand our role in life. The only way we will gain an understanding is for us to spend time in fellowship with the Lord in prayer and in his Word.
If we seek out the Lord, he will open the right doors for us. He wants us to best utilize our lives. He made us to fulfill a particular role in life. Wise is he who finds out what his role is and does it. There is no greater peace and joy in life than to be doing the good God has given us to do.
