TIME!

Today’s sermon is my today’s birthday message not only to others but also to myself.

James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15: For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

I. Life passes so quickly,
  A. Today I am 81 years of age and I can say as all old people can say life has passed fast, it seems a short time ago I was married in 1962.
  B. The Bible tells us we can expect
  - Psalms 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
    1. For the believer we fly away to be with the Lord.
    2. If more that means we continue in the Grace of God serving Him until He calls us home.

II. We need to redeem the time God gives us.
  A. Colossians 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
  B. I recently learned that among some branches of Judaism, a man who has reached the age of 83 will customarily celebrate a second bar mitzvah, under the logic that a “normal” lifespan is 70 years, so that an 83-year-old can be considered 13 in a second lifetime. (Jewish boys normally celebrate their first bar mitzvah at age 13.)

III. Moses was 80 when God called him to the ministry of delivering His people.
  A. God told him His Name was ‘I AM’.
    1. Not the great I was, not the great I am going to be.
    2. He is the great I AM.
    - Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever and
    - Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not;
    3. He is the God of the Now!

IV. Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
  A. Today is the day to give your heart and life to Jesus and you will redeem the time God has given you on earth. Then your early life will become eternal life in Christ.
  B. Romans 10:13 and John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
  C. You can give me a Birthday present by hearing your gave your heart to Jesus for Him to be your personal saviour.

God bless you and yours.
On behalf of this generation,
Your friends in the service of Christ,
