MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 7 May 2019 – Be Prepared!
It has always been said that “Proper preparation prevent poor performance”. Hence, every individual who aims to reach his goals will need to be adequately prepared for the challenges that could stand in the way of achievement. DCLM Daily Manna 7 May 2019
The passage dwells mainly on Christ’s message to His disciples about His imminent return and the unpredictability of the time of His return. The fact that Jesus used different approaches and styles of expression suggest the importance He attaches to the need for proper preparation for anyone who hopes to go to heaven. DCLM Daily Manna 7 May 2019 Devotional – Be Prepared!
Getting to heaven in view of Christ’s teaching is definitely not a tea party and it is not an all-comers’ affair. Those who aim to get to heaven, which is the “Father’s good pleasure to give”, must shun to “sights that dazzle” and resist “the tempting sounds” around them.
Our preparation to live with God in His kingdom will include faith in Christ for salvation as against fear of man that ensnares in sin; putting off all worldly distractions to focus on the heavenly treasure; firmness of purpose and practical Christian living; constant carefulness and watchfulness on the slippery way; faithfulness in Christian service; loving and caring for other co-travellers, and resolute commitment to obeying His command and rejecting compromise.
DCLM Daily Manna 7th May 2019 – Be Prepared! by Pastor Kumuyi
God is preparing another kingdom for His faithful and waiting servants. We must cling unto Him, no matter the push or pull of the world to compromise our faith. We must consciously decide not to be swayed by the fads and fancies of this age. The way to get to heaven is through genuine repentance and faith in the finished work of Christ.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Heaven is for the prepared.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Judges 14-17
