Text: 2 Corinthians 5: 10. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
We go through so many thoughts in our mind at every point of our life.
The mind of man is programmed to process events, activities and also the future.
We have thoughts like;
When I get a job or when I become so wealthy or when I finally settle down maritally and many other beautiful thoughts.
But have you ever thought of this one thought,
“When I take my last breath, what would be my last activity.?
Will I be caught up unaware by the cold hands of death in your immoral activity, swindling activity, and all sorts of evil?
We must learn to number our days on earth in order to gain wisdom. Psalm 90:12.
In Jesus’ words about His coming, He said;
Matthew 24: 43. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
In the same manner, we must be careful of the activities we engage ourselves in.
Many have died right in the act of their sin.
God wants me to caution you today.
Don’t only focus on temporal things, focus on eternal things.
When we focus on things that are not perishable with eternal value, we would honor God with our body and our resources.
Now imagine an armed robber who died in the act, a fornicator who died in the act, what would be their fate before God?
For condemnation and judgment is sure for those who are not in Christ Jesus.
Condemnation is for those who walk according to the flesh. Romans 8:1.
Beloved, it was God’s love for the world that brought Jesus to redeem me and you.
If Jesus has saved you from the world and works of the flesh, do not go back to them again.
Don’t live like fools who say there is no God, no Heaven or Hell.
For the Bible tells us in Revelation 21: 8. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Take a daily self-examination on your life and surrender to the conviction of the Holy Spirit whenever He convicts you.
Again, in Matthew 5: 29. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
You must cut off any friend or evil habit that is capable of destroying your life and soul in Hell.
Prayer of repentance.
Jesus, I have heard your word.
Forgive me my sins as I repent today and turn a new life.
I confess you as Lord and Savior of my life.
Thank you for saving me in Jesus Christ name.
May God help you to effectively live the Christian life and run your race.
