"Live, not as Unwise but as Wise"

“Live, not as Unwise but as Wise”


Be very careful, then, how you live---not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.          Ephesians 5:15-17


I sometimes wonder what the Apostle Paul would think if he lived on this earth, today.  In his letter to the Ephesians, he strongly encouraged them to be very careful how they lived their lives.  He encouraged them to live not as an UNWISE person, but as a WISE person, so they would be able to make the most of every opportunity to be a LIGHT in the darkness, because the days are evil.  Paul believed that he was living in the last days, because of all the evil that he encountered.


I wonder what he would say to us today.  I believe that he would give us the same advice.  To carefully live our lives---not as UNWISE, but as WISE, and for us to make the MOST of EVERY opportunity to bring LIGHT into this sinful, dark world.  In order to bring others into the family of God, while there is STILL time.  We must NOT be foolish, but we MUST SEEK to understand what the Lord’s will is, and then to act upon His will.


It is His desire that ALL would come to Him for their SALVATION, and that NONE would perish, so He uses His Children to GO and TELL others the GOOD NEWS, Jesus saves.  We MUST live our lives in a way that would exemplify God’s love for a lost and dying world, while we still can for the days are evil and time is short.  We need to do it NOW, while we still can.


If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are a part of the darkness and are living unwisely.  You are in danger of spending ALL eternity in Hell, a place of torture, torment, agony, misery, and pain with NO way of escape.  However you have the opportunity to change your destiny, NOW by:  CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and live your life NOT as UNWISE, but as WISE, and be a LIGHT in the darkness for those who are lost in their sins.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
