Greetings in the name of the Lord.

My name is Eddie Faulkner, I am the pastor here at Bolton Full Gospel Church. This is my home church. I came to know the Lord on Easter Sunday of 1980. I then went to Jimmy Swaggart Bible College. After graduation, I came back here and served as youth pastor before becoming senior pastor in July of 1987. I am married to my beautiful wife and best friend Ronnie. We have four sons:  Josh, Ben, Justin, Zach;  and one daughter, Mikayla. We also have two grandsons:  Ryker, Kellon; and one granddaughter, Wren.

 


 

Eph. 5:15-16 "see then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."

This Sunday is our Homecoming. We see friends we have not seen in a long time. We think about the past and all the love ones and saints that have gone on to heaven before us. We talk about how time stops for no one.

Have you ever said 'just wish I had a little more time"? As Christians, we should hold the view that we are stewards and not possessors of the resources available to us. Wealth and time belong to God and are given to us to faithfully manage for the best possible return. God gives us 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day and 168 hours in a week. What kind of steward would you say you are and why?

Why is it so important for Christians to make the best of their time and what are the eternal consequences of wasting the time God entrusts to us? (Satan has seen to it that the last days of the world are going to be so hectic people will not have time to think about the condition of their soul. What is worse, the Christian will not have time to pray and reach for the lost. The result of wasted time is people that could have been saved will be lost for eternity.)

Think about "Tithing Your Time". The least amount of time that God expects from us is 17 hours in a week. It is the smallest but most important block of time of our day and week. Yet when we fall short of time, from where do we take time and why? (Many will take God's time because the consequence of taking God's time may not be immediate, but the long term effect is disastrous.)

 

May you begin to faithfully to give a tithe of your time. See if God won't increase your time back to you as he promised in Malachi3:8. God bless your faithfullness!


Pastor Eddie
