Text: 1 Corinthians 15: 52.
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The journey of life started from a day and will also end in a day.
The beginning of life is like the beginning of a book, the tittle is introduced, the table of contents, acknowledgements, the book chapters and contents are unveiled and the story continues until the end of the book.
Our first cry on earth, introduces us to life, from the first cry until now, many have written about 30 pages (30 years), 20, 50 and more or less chapters of their life.
Every morning draws us closer to the end of our days on earth.
The truth and undeniable fact about life, is that no matter what you write in the space of your time, a day comes when your life, will end.
Therefore as believers, we must be conscious and attentive to our life activities.
We must learn to number our days on earth that we may apply our hearts to wisdom as the Bible tell us in Psalm 90:12.
If you take a glance at the chapters book of many believers, you’ll get disappointed.
But nevertheless, there is still hope and the days of salvation is here again.
The most beautiful thing about life is that, no matter what we have written in the past, whenever we turn to God in all genuineness of heart and pure repentance, there’s always a brand new page of a new write up. The old is gone and forgotten and all things are made new. 2 Corinthians 5:17, Psalm 103:12.
Why do I need to write good stories in my book of life?
1. Imagine you pick up a book to read and the whole chapters is full of evil and dirts, what would you do? Take the book and burn it up. If we can discard dirty books written by men, we must also keep in heart that our own book of life is kept in heaven with records of every single activity on earth. Do you think God will not do same to you on the last day, if your stories are evil and bad just same as you did to that book on earth?
2. Another reason why we must keep good records on earth, is because of the consciousness of rapture.
A day cometh, when every thing on earth will end.
A day cometh when the trumpet shall sound.
1 Corinthians 15:52.
One day you came in, One day you’ll surely leave.
Every beginning has an end.
Repent from your sins and be born again.
A day cometh when we would no more be privileged to hear the word of God again.
A day cometh when the heavens will open and the righteous will be caught up with Christ in the cloud.
One day the son of man will come like a thief in the night.
When a thief attacks your house, he takes you unaware, in order to plunder you.
But we have a Faithful friend in Christ Jesus, though He would come like a thief in the night, He has sent thousands and millions of prophets and witnesses to announce to the world. Meaning He doesn’t want to take you unaware but He wants you to be ready and upright in your faith.
Child of God, the road that seems right, easy, beautiful with evil fruits, leads to eternal damnation in hell.
Jesus is calling you today from the life of wasted years.
Today is a day of salvation.
Evaluate yourself and make all wrong things right.
Return to the Lord today.
Let the sinner sin no more.
Dear Jesus, I acknowledge my sin before you.
I believe in your finished work on the cross for the salvation of my soul.
I accept you today as the Lord and personal savior of my soul.
By your blood, I am made whole of every sin and affliction of the devil.
And I denounce sin and every works of the devil.
Help me Lord Jesus Christ as I daily work out my salvation.
