Carpe Diem

21 05 2014

Wtimee must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work. But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.
John 9:4-5 NLT

“Carpe Diem” is a Latin phrase that is often translated as a directive to ”Seize the Day.” It is a motivating term for me to maximize my time and effort during the opportunity that the day has to offer.

This passage in St. John is a response from Jesus to the Disciples about the urgency of our work here on earth. It gives important reminders about our existence:
• Our assignment is given to us by God. As our Creator, He knows our purpose and our God-given assignment that is consistent with His word.
• We must be focused and move with urgency to fulfill our tasks.
• We have limited time to accomplish our work.

We want to be focused in our thinking, in our attention and mindful of the opportunities to serve.  Approaching this day, I want to focus on advancing my God-given assignment on behalf of the ministry of Jesus Christ.
