Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21 : 36
Good morning. This is the story which we told the kids when we visited the orphanage last time.
Two friends Sam and Dany chose different paths. Sam became an advocate and Dany went away from the Lord and started committing sins and once he stole something and was in the court. Sam advocated for Dany and won the case though he knew that his friend stole things. He advised Dany and then let him go. The next time also the same happened. Dany was again set free by the help of Sam. Dany then was not afraid to do anything as he knew that Sam was on his side. Now he murdered someone and was in the court searching for Sam. This time he saw Sam not as a lawyer, but as the judge. He was so happy that by any chance he would escape. But he was shocked when he heard his friend declaring a death sentence to him.
Spiritually seeing, Dany is like you and me doing what is not right. Sam is like Jesus who advocates & pleads for us when we commit sins. But as we see lot of things are happening around us which indicate that the end is near. I'm hearing lot of preachers preaching about the last days. In my devotional studies too Lord clearly speaks that His coming is very close by and His kingdom is near. Yes, Christ is coming back again, but not as a baby or as an advocate, but as a judge who is going to judge us rightly according to what we deserve actually.
Watch carefully. Be as the 5 wise virgins who’re well prepared with sufficient oil to meet the bridegroom. Be as the 2 faithful servants who multiplied the talents their master entrusted them with. Be as the wise and honest servant who treated his fellow servants whom his master gave to him. Be as if you’re a little kid to enter into the Kingdom of God. Bible says He would come like a thief who comes with no prior notice. Be alert to live holy, to reconcile with one another, to never give up when you face struggles, to bring lot many people into His flock. Be alert, as you don’t know on what day He would come. Be alert to help the needy people around you so that you’ll be standing as one of the sheep in the right side to enter into the place which the Lord has for.
May God bless!
