It All Belongs to God

Therefore Jesus told them, “The right time for me has not yet come; for you any time is right.”  -John 7:6
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.  -II Cor. 6:2b

“Our leisure, even our play, is a matter of serious concern. There is no neutral ground in the universe: every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan.” -C.S. Lewis

We moderns love the middle ground.  We try to balance things, be “well-rounded,” no extremes.  We try to level “the playing field,” lower everyone to a common denominator.  Even in our spiritual life we don’t want to get too clockserious or “fanatical.”  We want to make sure we give God his due but there are compartments of our life which exclude or at least ignore God.  Some of those are our jobs, our leisure, our politics.  Each person probably has a different list.

But it won’t work.  Either it all belongs to God, includes God, or nothing does.  Satan knows this very well.  So Lewis is right.  He contests every second, every minute, hour, day, every year.  Offer this minute, this hour, this day to God.
