When You Die, Will They Be Right? III.
“…I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.”
1 Kings 13:21-22.
“And he cried unto the man of God that came from Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and hast not kept the commandment which the LORD thy God commanded thee, But camest back, and hast eaten bread and drunk water in the place, of the which the LORD did say to thee, Eat no bread, and drink no water; thy carcase shall not come unto the sepulchre of thy fathers.”
Yesterday, we noticed that charity is good and rewarding, only if it is done genuinely and carried out for the glory of God, and not for a show of affluence or iIl-gotten wealth. Moreover, been a philanthropist, do not guaranteed a place in the kingdom of God, except holiness is your watchword.
However, aside persons that died smiling and philanthropist, many accolades are shower on ministers or servants of God, when they die. It is believe that such a highly placed individual in the scheme of spiritual things, is automatically going to heaven. It’s a fact but not the truth, for there is possibility of falling from grace.
Meanwhile, our today’s text talked about a young prophet, despite all his exploits for God’s glory, he fell into deceit and his ministerial journey was terminated abruptly. So also, Samson did not know, when the Lord departed from him.
Conclusively, dear friend in Christ, let’s watch and pray, so that what people will say after you, can be true of you. Ensure a daily check of your fellowship with your Maker, so as not to fall from grace.
God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
By the Lord’s Mercy and Grace, I will not fall from grace.
Loving Father, your word is Yea and Amen. Help me to remain standing in the truth of your word. And give me Lord, the grace not to fall from Your grace in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
B. J. Folorunsho.
See you next year!
