Are you a Waster?


“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.”-Ephesians 5:15-17

What are you doing with your life?

One day stand before the Lord Jesus Christ to be judged by what we did with our life after we were saved. This judgment is called "The Judgment Seat of Christ."  The Bible says, "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that everyone may receive the things done in his body…" - 2 Corinthians 5:10

Christ will never be completely satisfied until He is the single passion of your heart. In the book Don't Waste Your Life, John Piper says,

Christ will never be completely satisfied until He is the single passion of your heart. In the book Don't Waste Your Life, John Piper says,

“We do not use the word cool to describe true greatness. It is a small word. That's the point. It's cheap. And it's what millions of young people live for. Who confronts them with tears? Who pleads with them not to waste their lives? Who takes them by the collar, so to speak, and loves them enough to show them a life so radical and so real and so costly and Christ-saturated that they feel the emptiness and triviality of their CD collections and their pointless conversations about passing celebrities? Who will waken what lies latent in their souls, untapped—a longing not to waste their lives? God is closing in on some of you. He is like the "Hound of Heaven" who wants to make you far happier in some dangerous and dirty work. Missionaries and servants of God do not come from nowhere. They come from people like you, stunned by the glory of God and stopped in your tracks. Sometimes it happens when you are going in exactly the opposite direction.”

A day that has nothing in it for God is a wasted day. Does your life have anything in it for God. If you live your life pleasing yourself and doing the will of the flesh, you will waste your life.

Don’t waste your life!

Make Jesus Christ the single passion of your life. The single passion of Christ's heart is His believers. He thinks about His own all the time. Every believer can say, "The Son of God loved me and gave Himself for me."

Live with a passion to serve Him.
