Make The Most of This Opportunity

This is our day. This is our moment. This is our opportunity.

The Bible does not suggest, but rather demands that Christians make the most of every opportunity; make the best use of the time. “Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time” (Colossians 4:5; cf. Ephesians 5:16). It might be good to read the verse that follows, too. “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer each person.”

As the uncertainty or the wait continues for the result of the Presidential election, Christians need to realize one thing: we are to make the most of this opportunity. The result of the 2020 Presidential election is our opportunity to show that we not only believe that the joy of the Lord is our strength, but rather is our conviction (Nehemiah 8:10). This is our opportunity to show that we not only believer that our citizenship is in heaven, but rather is our conviction (Philippians 3:20). This is our opportunity to show that we not only believe we have a better possession, desire a better country (the heavenly one), but rather is our conviction (Hebrews 10; 11). This is our opportunity to show that we not only believe that we count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Jesus Christ my Lord, but rather is our conviction (Philippians 3:8). This is our opportunity to show that we not only believe that to live is Christ, and to die is gain, but rather is our conviction (Philippians 1:21). This is our opportunity to show that we not only believe that we will rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold our reward is great in heaven, but rather is our conviction (Luke 6:22-23).

Christian, make the most of this opportunity. This is our day. This is our moment. Make the best use of the time.
