About the Book

In this world, Christians are in a constant spiritual battle, and one common problem facing Christians is our use of time. We can feel frustrated with the demands placed on our time, and between work, family, and ministry, our service can even begin to feel like a burden. But what is time? How should we spend our time? Whose time is it anyway? In Time for Christ, author Gil Jacobs presents seven Christian principles to help you be a good steward of your time. In an age when we experience increasing demands on our time, this book presents a strategy for using your time in a God-pleasing way, so we can claim God’s promise: “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:30). When we accept God’s gracious gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, we become his adopted daughters and sons. Just as we love and care for our own children, God loves and cares for us. But just as children, we must spend time with our heavenly Father to live lives that please and glorify him. Time for Christ will show you how to glorify God and enjoy your relationship with him as you apply his principles of time stewardship in your life.
