Did You know that when you stand alone before Jesus, He is going to open the books that record your every thought and deed and take you back through the life that you lived on earth?
Every moment that you did not do what He asked you to do will be brought forward in your mind. All the things that you did that you would be ashamed of; that now you would want the opportunity to go back and do them over again, will be brought into the light.
You will be like the people that came to know Christ at the end of their lives. The ones like the Thief on the Cross-who never lived a life for Christ.
Carnal Christian, Why can’t I see Christ in you?
Why won’t you live a life before others that is different; one that is respectful, one that is to be admired, one that has a higher standard, a higher calling?
Why is your desire to swim within the sewage that surrounds you? Why do you prefer to hide in the shadows, rather than walk in the light? What is so important to you about the respect of those un-regenerate people living in the darkness around you that you choose to act like them?
Why are you not willing to open your mouth and stand alone for JESUS. Why is it that you prefer to dishonor the Lord and dishonor yourself by clinging to the earth dwellers with hearts of stone that weigh them down so they cannot rise up to the portals of Heaven?
Wake up to the reality of who you are. You are an image bearer of Christ. Your light should shine like a Pillar of Fire instead it shines like a candle in the darkness. You have chosen the journey towards home on the path that wanders into the shadows that surround you; rather than walking the narrow road bathed in His light, one step at a time all the way home.
As you become older and fragile, getting closer to the end of the road of this existence. You will start to realize that you cannot live the way you did before. Those days are gone. You will start thinking about what is ahead of you.
As the TRUTH becomes clearer you will look back and feel shame and realize that you would give anything to erase the story of a life lived in shadows.
Because you will finally understand what you have not done for Him all your life.
It’s NOT TOO LATE ! . Look ahead; see Him there with His nail-scarred hand outstretched to you? Go on, run to HIM, take His hand change your walk and your talk and start living according to His will.
He can do great and mighty things through you because you serve an Extraordinary God, who loves ordinary people, which is who you are…an ordinary person.
But one who has the Lord with Him and the Holy Spirit in Him.
The God/man became the Son of Man so that men could become Sons of God. You are one of Gods children. You have the right to call HIM ABBA…DADDY.
He has a plan for your life from Eternity Past. Give Him the chance to work through you and then honor Him and He will take you on a Journey that you will never believe you could have.
You were born to live out the GREAT ADVENTURE He wants you to experience.
A journey that will finally take you Home where you can stand before HIM in honor because you honored Him…. Don’t disappoint your Lord!
