Serving God with what you have: in and through the Church.
The Christian's Time
If the average man spends his daily time in 8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work, 1-2 hours of eating, 3 hours of television watching, and 1 hour of travel, is there time for God? Is there time for serving God? Serving God with lip service is not what the Lord wants, nor expects. He asks us to give to Him not only ourselves, our possessions, but of our time. Time to study, to meditate upon His Word; time to pray; time to attend his family gatherings (church, church school, prayer meetings, Bible studies, etc.); time to worship; time to give; time to witness; time to share your talents and gifts as you serve the Almighty God, His family, and other people. For you see, our time is really His time! There must be time for Him! Without Him there is no time!

Scripture Assurance: Ephesians 1:9-11 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself. That in the dispensation of the fullness of time he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him. In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.
Scripture Memory: Psalms 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.
