How Do You Spend Your Free Time?

How Do You Spend Your Free Time

Free time is not a trivial matter. The activities we participate in during our moments of leisure shape our identity.

The Apostle Paul tells us not to make good use of our time, but to make the best use of our time. His understanding of the present evil age leads him to strong exhortation regarding the way followers of Jesus must manage our time. Our lives are so short. James reminds us that our life is little more than “a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”

How Are We Spending Our Free Time?

Why then do we fritter so much of our lives away in front of the television screen? Why do we spend every evening playing or watching sports? Why do we spend our weekends roaming the shopping malls, looking at more things we do not need?

Jesus tells us to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Seeking first the Kingdom means we are not seeking after the same things as the pagan world around us: food, drink and clothing.

We must take a good look at our lives. Do we shop as often, and for the same things, as our non-Christian neighbors? Do we covet all the newest fashions? Are we as drawn to the latest technological gizmos as everyone else? Too often, we give lip service to seeking first the Kingdom, while our lives demonstrate pagan preoccupations.

Structuring Our Free Time

Structuring our free time in a God-honoring way means we will prioritize our leisure activities so that it is clear that Jesus is on the throne of our lives. We will make time for daily Bible study and prayer. We will share meals around the table instead of in front of the tube. We will engage in family prayer and worship. And when our devotion to Jesus collides with the temptation to put something else on the throne, we will demonstrate to the world who is our King.

One way we can prioritize our activities is quite practical. Many organized sports leagues now play soccer or softball on Sundays, as though it were any other day. What should a Christian do in this situation?

Here’s another example: While in high school, my brother played for an advanced soccer league that practiced every Wednesday night during the church’s youth group hour. My brother was faced with a dilemma: should he sacrifice his potential soccer scholarship in order to attend church? Or should he sacrifice Jesus on the altar of his sports ambitions? I was proud of his choice to fellowship with the Body of Christ, even if it meant he sacrificed playing time during the games. (Later, he was awarded a soccer scholarship to a Christian university.)

Sundays Are Important

Too many Christians pay lip service to Jesus as King and yet demonstrate by their recreational choices that something else is on the throne. Ball is Baal. When parents replace Sunday morning worship with a Sunday morning ballgame, they are communicating more to their children through that one action than many years’ worth of words stressing the importance of church attendance.

We declare something to be worthy by giving it our time and attention. Sports, movies, television, video games, shopping — all of these activities may be worthy of a place in our lives. But in a world in which people are bowing down to the Caesar of Leisure, spending so much time and energy in recreation and entertainment, Christians should intentionally seek to undermine the high status given to leisure by showing people that Jesus is more worthy.

What Should I Do?

For some, it will mean cutting out certain forms of entertainment completely. For others, it will mean sacrificing Sunday ballgames for Sunday worship. Our friends who are devoted to leisure might think we are crazy for cutting the cable cord, stopping our shopping sprees, praying at fixed hours, or missing some sporting events. Ironically, it is only when we put leisure back in its proper place under the lordship of Christ that we restore true sanity (the Apostle Peter calls it “sobermindedness”) to our lives.

What we do with our free time shows who is King of our lives.

3. I love you beyond human reason—even at your very worst, steeped in sin. (Rom. 5:8)

8. I’ve never ignored you. I’ve been here all along. Protecting. Loving. Waiting. (Ps. 56:8)

15. The shame and guilt weighs you down has been taken care of on the cross. Your bill has been zeroed out. (John 3:16)

16. The addictions. The pride. The selfishness. The hate. The lust. The jealousy. The critical spirit. The greed. I can heal it. All of it. You can start fresh. Today. (Rom. 8:1-4)

17. I will forgive you. But only if you ask. And I care more about the “ask” than I do about the sin. (Acts 3:19)

18. I will not force you to do or be anything. I want a relationship with you more than I want to rule over you. (Jeremiah 31:3)

19. I will forgive your sin and I will forget it. That’s right—completely erase it from my mind. No replays, no record. Gone. (Ps. 103:12)

20. It’s never too late to turn your life around. I came to give second chances. (Luke 23:42-43)

21. I love you. Let’s talk. (Jer. 29:13)

These are the 21 things every sinner should know. Know that our Jesus is the friend of all, including sinners.

Son Of God Movie HD Wallpapers

Many among us saw the movie Son Of God which was released this February, 2014. Here we give you some HD wallpapers from Son of God movie. Check out each of the 28 high-resolution wallpapers and choose your favorite one as your computer’s desktop wallpaper.

Origin Of The Movie

Last year, the History Channel aired a mini-series called “The Bible”, executive produced by husband and wife Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (who also played Mary, Jesus’ mother). The mini-series was nominated for 2 Primetime Emmys and received high audience ratings. “Son of God” is the Jesus section of that mini-series, brought to large screens in the hopes of finding an even wider audience.

About The Movie

Unlike Mel Gibson’s Passion of Christ, which focused on Jesus’ arrest, torture, and death, “Son of God” takes us through Jesus’ life from its humble beginnings in the barn, to the gathering of his followers, his march to Jerusalem, and all of the miracles he performed along the way. Watch Jesus multiply the loaves and fishes and walk on water and raise Lazarus from the dead.

When Jesus (played by Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado), first approaches the fisherman Peter (Darwin Shaw), loading up his boat in the dead-calm Sea of Galilee, Jesus smiles knowingly at Peter. Peter tells him there are no fish out there, and Jesus runs his hands through the water and Peter’s net is filled with fish.

Jesus: Come with me
Peter: What are we gonna do?
Jesus: Change The World

Jesus’ miracles come off one by one throughout the film. His followers multiply, and so do his critics. He threatens those in power, not only the Jewish high priests (led by Caiaphas, played by Adrian Schiller), but the Romans occupying Jerusalem.

Watch the movie Son Of God if you haven’t seen it yet. It may not be as great as the Passion of Christ, but it surely is a visual treat for all who believe in the Son of God. Also download the Son of God HD wallpapers given above by clicking on each of the thumbnail images.
