The Importance of Being On Time.

### Sermon: The Value of Timeliness

Good morning, beloved congregation. Today, I want to talk about something we often overlook in our spiritual journey: the importance of being on time. This isn't just about punctuality in our daily schedules but also about aligning ourselves with God's timing in our lives.

#### Ecclesiastes 3:1 - "To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven."

Solomon teaches us about the divine orchestration of time in this profound verse. Every moment, every season under heaven, is crafted by God. When we strive to be on time, we are not just respecting the clock but aligning ourselves with God's divine plan. He has a purpose for every season, and being on time means we are in sync with His will.

#### Galatians 4:4 - "But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law."

Look at the divine timeliness in the sending of Jesus Christ. God didn't send His Son too early or too late but at the perfect historical moment. This teaches us about God's impeccable timing in our lives. When we trust in His timing, we allow His perfect plans to unfold in our lives.

#### The Parable of the Ten Virgins (Matthew 25:1-13)

This parable is a powerful lesson in being Spiritually prepared and on time. The five wise virgins were ready and on time for the bridegroom, symbolizing Christ. However, the five foolish ones were late and unprepared. This teaches us the importance of being prepared and on time for God's calling, for we do not know the hour or the day of His return.

#### Application: Respecting God's Timing in Our Lives

1. Trust in God's Timing: Understand that God's timing is perfect, even when it doesn't align with our personal schedules.

2. Be Prepared: Like the five wise virgins, we should always be Spiritually prepared, living our lives so that we are ready to meet the Lord at any moment.

3. Serve Diligently: Being on time in our commitments, whether in church service or daily responsibilities, is a form of stewardship and service to God.

4. Patience in Waiting: Sometimes, being on time means patiently waiting for God's timing. Remember, Abraham and Sarah waited years for Isaac, and their patience was rewarded.

In conclusion, let us strive to be on time, not just in our daily routines but in aligning ourselves with God's perfect timing. For in His time, He makes all things beautiful. Let us be like the wise virgins, always ready, always prepared, for we serve a God who is always on time.
