“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.” Colossians 4:5-6 (KJV)
After spending time in diligent,earnest prayer the walk of every Christian should be in wisdom. The wisdom which is of God, not of the world.
This wisdom is part; not the whole of our testimony; because the walk is the evidence of our testimony in Christ. O child of God; others are watching us to see how we stand in the storms and trials of life. They are also watching how we speak, refrain from speaking, and how we use our words; and the words we use.
Every day we ought to “Redeem our time” ie. make good use of our time with words that uplift Jesus Christ who bled and died on the cross for our sins, was buried – carrying all our sin, our shame, our guilt, our condemnation away; and rose again. This same Jesus is coming again, soon.
Our time to live for Christ in a godless world is short. Live for Jesus Christ now. Then, we will have an answer for all who ask the question.
