This sermon covers the next section in Ephesians in our verse by verse, expository study -- on being wise, being understanding, and knowing God's will. We must make the best use of our time -- we must redeem the time (Eph 5:15-17):
WHY you must redeem the time.
HOW you must redeem the time.
HINDRANCES to you redeeming the time.
ETERNITY's call for you to redeem the time.
Now is the acceptable time! Behold TODAY is the day of salvation!
