I am often reminded, by turning on the TV or scrolling through my Facebook news feed that the expiration of one’s life can be up at any time. Yet, isn’t it quite sad that most of us aren’t ready to die but we call ourselves Christians? It’s not that we aren’t ready because we haven’t lived but we aren’t ready because we haven’t done the things necessary to prepare our place in eternity. Yes, you’ve confessed your belief in God. Yes, you’ve been saved. Yes, you’ve been baptized. And yes, you probably even go to church but what else? Have you done your part in saving those who are lost? Have you done your part loving like you should? Have you done your part helping where you could? Have you kept the commandments or repented when you haven’t? Have you learned from your mistakes or do you sin and repent only to sin again? If God appeared to you now and told you that you had until midnight to put your affairs in order, would that be enough time? Would you be able to tell God, at judgment that you asked somebody to go to church with you or only to the club? Will you be able to tell God you invited someone to bible study with you or was that the bar? Will you be able to tell God you prayed for someone and not preyed on them? Will you be able to tell God you laid hands on someone for healing and not laid hands for hurting? Will you be able to tell God you pick someone up or will you look away when you realize you pushed them instead? What will you tell God?
I don’t know if you realize this or not but its action time Saints! After we get through praying, its time for us to get up and anoint with oil, pray these demons out of children and some of the parents. Its time we get back to blessing our churches, homes and place of business. Its time we start and end with pray. It’s time we get back to the altar prayers where folk were actually healed because faith did it. It’s action time! It’s time to raise up a nation that is about God’s business because the world is suffering and we are losing, it shouldn’t be this way! God already made us victorious before we even step foot in the battle but it’s up to us to be victorious when we come out! What will you tell God?
