Live for eternity

‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:17‬ ‭ERV‬‬
[17] The world is passing away, and all the things that people want in the world are passing away. But whoever does what God wants will live forever.

No one ever born lives forever. Everyone dies at one point in time.

Either you die a natural cause, or through human activities or death kills you.

Yes, Everyone will die

So, why not live for eternity. Live like you own nothing here but owns everything in the life beyond.

If we understand what life is, we would make better decisions about how we live on earth. 

Everything we run after will not go with us to the grave.

‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭3:10‭-‬12‬ ‭ERV‬‬

[10] But the day when the Lord comes again will surprise everyone like the coming of a thief. The sky will disappear with a loud noise. Everything in the sky will be destroyed with fire. And the earth and everything in it will be burned up. [11] Everything will be destroyed in this way. So what kind of people should you be? Your lives should be holy and devoted to God. [12] You should be looking forward to the day of God, wanting more than anything else for it to come soon. When it comes, the sky will be destroyed with fire, and everything in the sky will melt with heat.


Lost priority in a lost world

The devil is the prince of this world (John 14:30). So, to try  out shining (become famous, popular, excessively materialistic) in his (devil) world is a lost priority and evidence of a punctured destiny.

This world is not our own, and it’s passing away with all that is in it.

The understanding of this should help us set our priorities right and stay focus amidst noises and turmoil that rages around us on daily basis.

Any reason to be thankful

A lot of things is challenging in life, but as long as we trust and hope, then there’s a chance of a bright future.

Don’t give up yet, but reflect on the positive things and build on it as you grow.

So, hopefully, you wake up this morning and thank God for everything.

If you focus on the negative sides of life, you will be depressed, but if you think about the positive things, you will be happy.

Righteous life over moral life

We owe it to ourselves and to the public to live a moral life, but we must trust God to live a righteous life.

Moral life does not endear God. Righteous life does!

It is good to live a moral life, but this is necessary for making good impact in our world.

The life that makes everlasting impact and guarantees our access to God is a righteous life which is only possible through Jesus.

Lack of love

Jesus repeatedly emphasized how important it is to love the brethren and to love one another.

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”Great damage is possible when there is a lack of love. John 13:35

People will only seek their interest, and the Bible says in humility, consider others better than yourself.

We are told to condescend to the interest of others. 

A selfish life thinks only about self and personal satisfaction, but a love life thinks about others and their well-being. 

The gut feeling

It will take a lot of gut for true Christians to walk this life successfully because there is too much evil everywhere.

Believers should dare to extend their prayer lives. Dare to pray is dare to conquer more grounds. 

The dare to know God’s will is the dare to know Him. Let’s go to God’s presence to obtain His mercy and grace to help us when needed.

There is no shame in displaying our passion for someone we love. So, no shame in showing how much we love God.

We can go the extra mile to please or satisfy our lovers. So, we can love Jesus, too!

He dared die for me in public. So, I will dare show my unwavering love for Him anywhere and everywhere. 

Wisdom nuggets

Your weaknesses make you prone to attack.

Weaknesses are evidence that we are not perfect beings.

Weak spots are a target for the enemy.

It is humility to acknowledge your weakness and ask for help. It is also a smart thing to do.

Acknowledging your weak areas is a sign of strength.

Always ask for help in your weak/vulnerable areas.

The Lord does not fail in His promises.

Obedience is one major key to unlocking the heavenly blessings.

The blessing of the Lord truly makes you rich with little or no stress.

A man’s struggle reduces significantly with any external help or assistance.

Do not align yourself with someone who has a different value system or mindset. It messes up your rhythm.

Trying to befriend a person who does not believe in what you believe is like trying to play cards with the devil.

Positioning yourself- take action

Rth 3:4 NET When he gets ready to go to sleep, take careful notice of the place where he lies down. Then go, uncover his legs, and lie down beside him. He will tell you what you should do.”

This is really fascinating to me. This is Ruth saying to Boaz, “here I am. I am available for you.”

For Ruth to make this bold and brittle move, she must be so confident in herself, and quite audacious. 

It is a rare but necessary move if Ruth is going to settle down in her new-found home. 

Ruth didn’t impose or force herself on Boaz. She waited and carefully do the normal ritual appropriate at the moment.

The ability to read and understand the time, the mood, and the circumstances is impressive.

I believe that this is what made Ruth secure her place in life, not self-righteousness, sneaky behavior, attitude or being cocky.

Nowadays, we seek to do it our own way and we often make mistakes. 

Ruth listened to her mother-in-law, and followed the instructions that got her the rightful position. 

Who has ear let him hear!
