Quality Time

1 Thessalonians 5:24

He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Ours is a world of satellites, lasers, cell phones, and ATMs. Faxes zoom

across telephone lines, and computers arrange daily schedules with supreme

accuracy. Because of all these things, we have learned to demand instant


The tendency to try to become super Christians within a very short

time is grave. It is almost as if we believe that to please God, we must

become "better" quickly. However, God does not work this way.

Over time, our love and devotion for God will increase naturally.

Spiritual growth cannot be forced. The maturation process takes time,

quality time, spent with God.

This is how God weeds out old, sinful habits and plants His renewing

truths within our hearts and minds. He knows that to produce maximum

growth there must be maximum care and nurturing. God slowly reshapes

our lives until they are molded into the image of His Son.

Never become discouraged by the apparently slow process of your

spiritual growth. God's schedule is not ours. And if you will seek Him

above everything else, you will receive all He has for you within His timing.

Lord, I want a relationship with You above all else. I want to receive all that

you have for me. amen
