Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
-Jesus often prayed for His followers, the world & Himself. His appointed time had come that He may redeem the world & give us eternal life. Part of His mission was to return the Lords glory as it was before the earth was defiled by sin. His resurrection concluded His work on earth that He may be glorified in us by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
God created the sun, moon & galaxy to define time. He gave us a duty to subdue, multiply & fill the earth basically work in the family unit, employment or businesses & relations with Him & those around us. He created everything from the beginning to the end. Time & season were placed for every purpose in our lifetime under heaven. There are many ups & down in life which come in seasons. Just like Sarah who was old & barren, God has not abandoned us even when we feel forgotten & rejected. God calls us to the throne of grace where mercy abounds even in the time of need. Time and chance happen to everyone as Jesus explains in the parable of the talents. Every human being is assigned talents & gifts in line with their abilities which are seeds sown in our hearts. It is the responsibility of each one of us to make the seeds grow through exploration of ones potential & make a difference on earth. Lastly, since time wasted can never be recovered, it is necessary to maximize its utility by making wise decisions. This can only be envisioned when we call on the Lord our Father & give thanks to Him always.
Kindle in our hearts the fire of Your love hearts; Oh Holy Spirit that we may walk in Your wisdom, all for Your glory. Help us to use our time, talents & resources wisely that Your will may be done on earth as it in heaven. Increase our faith in You & help us when we are weak & downcast. Answer our prayers & petitions. We glorify You & give You thanks always. Amen
