A smart Pastor in Hong Kong by the name of Mr. Greg recently gave a sermon on things that are sacred to God at Union (non-denominational) Church. They are ‘Time and Space’. It makes sense, God is infinite and genius beyond human comprehension and we are only tiny tiny fishes in God’s amazing work(s). What he deems Holy, us humans have to look deeper into the reasoning behind such priorities.
Time and Time Management
God gave us life on earth and in turn, gave us time. With time, we can fulfill our individual and collective purpose in this world whilst we work towards gaining entry into God’s Everlasting Kingdom. Time is a valuable resource that must be planned and leveraged appropriately. Time allows us to manifest and create; ultimately satisfying his will for us at present and eternally.
Everyone can learn how to manage their time better in order to fulfill their purpose for God. This is something I’m personally working on and we can improve together. Ultimately, we are masters of our own purpose through our mastery of time. There are only three ways to spend your time: “thoughts”, “conversations” and “actions”. (source: entrepreneur).
Sacred Space and How to Protect It
Every time I walk into a Church or Synagogue; I feel closer to God. It is an indescribable feeling of spiritual uplifting, joy and satisfaction. It is always good to arrive early or stay a bit late to enjoy the silence and sacredness of the space and find meaningful connection with God. God is all around us and he listens and answers all. Space built solely for God worship has deep significance to God. It shows our reverence and respect for the All Mighty Creator. It gives him dedicated holy area where he can stay and rest and listen to us as he pleases.
In order to protect it, we have to show our deep respect for God’s space (worship areas). We can do this through keeping it clean, rebuilding and upgrading as needed. We can practice care while we use God’s facilities. We can contribute our resources (time and money) to help keep the Sacred space for years to come.
