Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 1 Peter 1:17 New International Version
It does not matter what others say in ridicule or scorn to me, I want to live so that I will hear Him say to me” Well done good and faithful servant.” Joseph- Anthony: Green
When I was a teenager it drove me crazy with everyone telling how to live my life with each being different from the other. I could not please everybody so I pleased nobody, especially myself. To say I was miserable was an understatement. I was confused and frustrated to the max each and every day.
When faithfully obeying the Holy Spirits leading I slowly learned that Jehovah had a plan for my life and that He had a purpose for me.
Jesus does not care if you are rich or poor, a sports athlete or permanently crippled in a wheelchair, whether you are handsome or bland, what colour you are or what country you come from. What he cares about it that you are faithful and obedient to His calling in your life. And, He does have a calling for each and every one of us, His servants.
To be in reverent fear means to be respectful.
As Jesus is our King so too are we His servants. We are to be respectful and obedient to our King and in our service to our King.
It is to Him and Him alone that we owe allegiance to and not any country or relative.
Jesus is my judge not my neighbour nor relatives nor friends. Joseph- Anthony: Green
People are fickle. Today you are a hero and tomorrow you are a has been. People minds are limited and clouded by their own desires. Every time I followed a man or womans advice without consulting Jehovah first it the endeavor ended in disaster.
Whose judgment concerns you more: people or Jesus’?
Be careful, your eternal destiny depends upon this important decision.
Prayer: Please Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is My Judge) bless me with guidance and strength to always be an obedient son unto You in my walk towards Your Heavenly home You have lovingly prepared for me. I sincerely request this in the name of my beloved King Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
