Summary: watchfulness to Believers and unbelievers
My brothers and sisters let us hear, what the BIBLE says about WATCHFULNESS. For it is written, Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeki ng whom he may devour. 1 Pet. 5:8.
God is the one speaking to you and I, because He knows the mission of satan here on earth. God does not want you to loose out of His kingdom on the last day, but He is saying watch your lifestyle, the types of friends you keep, the way you talk, the way you treat your neighbours, the way you handle Spiritual matters and what you also do with your body. For it is written, Do you not know that you are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in you. If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is Holy, Which temple you are. 1 Cor. 3:16-17.
Apostle Paul ,the servant of the Most High God, knew the importance of WATCHFULNESS, that was why he was able to say to himself in the book of 1 Cor 9:27, But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
Are you still there living a life of sin? Adultery, Fornication, Abortion, Envy, Drunkenness, Unforgiveness, Violent, Greediness, Covetousness, Boasters, Inventors of evil things etc. God is saying, to you WATCH your ways of life so that, all this evil act will not take you to HELL on the last day. Gal 5:19-21.
Brothers and sisters this is the time everyone of us, as Christians (Believers) need to be steadfast with the Spiritual assignment given to us by God Almighty, because a DAY is coming when the books of records shall be open, what will you be remembered for, a man that chooses to please God Almighty or a man that chooses to please the devil by living in SIN? For it is written, Behold, I am coming quickly; Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. Rev. 3:11, 1 Cor 15:58, Lk 17:32 and 2 Cor 5:10.
Apostle Paul finished well, because he was WATCHFUL enough to please God always and he said in the book of 2 Tim. 4:7-8. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge, will give to me on the DAY, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
WHAT WILL BE YOUR TESTIMONY ON THAT DAY OF GOD’S VISITATION ?
Let us pray, Confess your sins and tell the Lord to have mercy on you and ask for the GRACE to finish well in this race of life. God helping us in jesus name Amen.
