"For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith."
(Galatians 6:8-10 KJV)
The idea in this Scripture is not clock time but opportunities to Touch A Life for Christ. Those openings for ministry that often come at inconvenient times such as a friend who wants to talk, a child who asks a question, or the chance to lend a hand to someone in need. Paul is telling us to keep our lives in order such that we can respond when the chance arises to help. These opportunities will be left out of an overly tight schedule.
You could say that opportunity is a time favorable for a purpose. This passage could be interpreted as referring to the present life that Our Awesome God gives us in order that we can learn to sow and do good things. We should not worry about the opportunities we missed today for we can do nothing about them. Today has passed, but we can decide to be alert for the opportunities to Touch A Life that Our Awesome God will give us tomorrow.
Paul called it doing "good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.".(Galatians 6:10). We can help shape another person's life by showing an interest and taking action. Check the people around you. Is there someone who needs your touch in their lives that Our Awesome God has given you the opportunity to touch with your words or actions? Be ready to respond to the opportunity to Touch A Life for our God!
Touching others with the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ is why we are here on earth. There are always people who have never heard about are wonderful God who created us and loves us. Our Awesome God wants us to know Him well enough that we will Touch A Life with the Words of Jesus Christ, God's Son, everywhere we go.
Come as we reach out to Touch A Life for Jesus Christ in our community and the world.
