👉MEMORY VERSE: _”And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come”_(Luke 19:13)
Naturally, humankind doesn’t appreciate what he owns. The people of Israel needed liberation from the hands of the tyrannical Egyptian Pharaoh. After the Lord had granted them this deliverance, they didn’t appreciate the saving power of God, and the freedom they obtained from slavery. Due to insubordination, only two of them were able to finally arrive in the Promised Land with the younger generation.
Thus has not seized in our generation at all. By the grace and mercy of God, God saved us from the shackles of sin and provided emancipation from the oppression against our souls. It is time for us to worship God according to His high preferential order of holiness but we are not doing our best to make His grace useful. Satan has succeeded in pulling down many churches who began well. They couldn’t occupy until the coming of Christ and that is eternally punishable.
To call yourself a Christian, one will have to work out his or her salvation diligently for God’s reward. How pitiful it is in our generation! As Most Churches cannot preach, promote, practice and encourage holiness because they have unraveled the difficulty involved in standing firm for the Lord unto the end. With faith and truth, we can prove an incredible point to God.
Christianity is like running with a spoon with egg on it. The more you run, the more it becomes dangerous for you to stay cautious in order not to crack the egg. Faith in God has to be preserved like the precious egg. If we carry the egg of faith like a spoon, no matter how people lose their eggs it shouldn’t be so in our case. Truth is the only weapon which can command freedom (John 8:32). One who has the Truth, needs to obviously be strong in the faith he is to die for. The work we are called to do, is to present our faith in God to the world.
Jesus Christ occupied Himself with the will of God until He finished on the Cross of Calvary (Romans 13:11-14). We have the opportunity to serve God in His holiness. Let the time and space in our disposal be delicately held with much priority. The enthusiasm with which we are to approach our spiritual responsibilities as Christians, must not depreciate or fade out. This will intend our daily engagement with acts of worship either than worrying ourselves with worldly things. Martha occupied herself with the unnecessary burden but Mary knew with conviction that being with Jesus Christ, was the right and most important thing to be done (Luke 10:38-42).
Ascribe no reason for your inability to labour for the Lord, occupy yourself with Church activities, preach the Gospel and stand for the truth in holiness until the day of accountability (Philippians 1:5-6, Matthew 10:34-39, Philippians 2:12-16, Colossians 3:23-24).
