How are you spending your free time in a week?
We have 3420 minutes of free time per week.
If we split that amount into 30 minute blocks, we have 114.
114 half hour blocks of free time.

Think about your free time from Gods point of view with these 5 categories ranging from obedience to disobedience:
A. Fulfilling God's work
B. Honoring God's commandments
C. Neutral
D. Self Satisfaction Only
E. Disobeying God

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NIV 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

Do you look like you're running a race? Are you actively training yourself? Looking to improve?

James 2:26 says "faith without works is dead".
Matthew 7:15-20 Jesus says "You will know them by their fruits".

Good works are the natural result of a genuine faith in Jesus Christ. When someone truly accepts Jesus into their heart, they are transformed from the inside out. They are given a new nature and a new desire to do what is right and to serve others.

Exodus 3-4
Do we also make these excuses?
When God tugs at our hearts to follow him, do we say:
A. Not me, there are better choices
B. Not me, I don't know enough
C. Not me, I'm not good at talking
D. Not me, I’m too scared
E. Not me, I have better things to do with my life

God takes you from wherever you are on your current spiritual journey. But remember to honestly check your time and your intentions, deep inside your heart.
