“Time flies when you’re having fun.”
Like all of the world’s wisdom, this little nugget appears to be true on the surface. It might otherwise be re-phrased as
“Time flies when you’re distracted.”
As always, it is the Bible which has the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth of the matter.
“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.”
“Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
Modern man is constantly busy but, in the end, never accomplishes much of anything worthwhile.
The end times world supplies the lost with a never-ending stream of distractions.

In the meantime: time marches on.
A sense of urgency should drive the Christian during the times in which we live.
Distractions are a tool of the enemy.
The time is short. It’s later than you think.
Redeem the time.
DOES the reader KNOW his life is not right?
DOES the reader find himself constantly busy, making lists?
DOES the reader place his hope for the future in such activities?
THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
