What are you known for? What reputation do you have? Whatever reputation you might have, whatever you are known for, if you are asleep spiritually, you are dead.
You might have been a believer, a priest, pastor or what not for 40years, if you are insensitive to the need of the souls around you, the need of salvation and care which invariably is the desires of God, you are but a dead corpse. Jesus Christ was very much in touch with reality, He was intune with the spiritual and physical need of the people all through scriptures.
God is calling us all to wake up from our selfish ambitions to the need of the greater good! Just think for yourself for once, examine yourself, do you see Christ in yourself? Any of Christ person reflecting in your character?
I mean, are you a kind person, generous, empathetic, selfless, truthful, humble, passionate about making sure others are comfortable and cared for? Or is it all about you wielding control over, and dominating others?
The message for you and I is “Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. Revelation 3:3″ We must shake ourselves loose from the sin that easily beset us. We must strengthen, fan up the flame of the Holy Ghost within. For our hearts is becoming seared. Hearts are dying while still breathing! I can’t begin to mention things, acts, that some believers engage in! Even unbelievers are too principled to go that low!
These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. 4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. 6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3: 1-6
You and I must not step into a new decade with old beliefs, ideas, and behaviors that has not served us well with the things that are of eternal value. They might have obtained for us admiration, accolades, and recognition, some $$ in our personal accounts etc. But all these! Do they have eternal worth?Tweet
You know yourself that, it is only that which is done for others on behalf of God Almighty that has significance!Tweet
Therefore, we must uproot, and overhaul every limiting beliefs and way of life! We must take hold of truth, love, and humility for this next phase/decade! It will serve us more!Tweet
