“Be dressed and ready for active service.” Luke 12:35 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
In the Christian life we are on a journey. Yes it is nice to think about what Heaven will be like but we need to stayed focused on where we are in the present and where Jehovah is leading us on our journey towards Heavens Gate.
We are useless to Christ if we spend our Christian life day dreaming about Heaven instead of concentrating on being Christs servant on the journey there. Joseph a servant of Christ.
On this journey many times we do not have a road map of where Christ is sending us our what our service entails. It may be a journey of being a godly husband or wife, a godly parent. It may be on a journey of your vocation as say a nurse or a waitress at a quaint restaurant.
During the course of this journey there will be many dangers, pitfalls, loneliness, and exhaustion. It is at these times we shall draw ever closer unto our Heavenly Beloved and He shall draw the closest to us. In His loving grace we shall experience His amazing love, wisdom, comfort, encouragement and power. This shall instill in us a wonder and awe of His majesty. The result of this is an ever deeper desire to trust Him on our journey to Heavens gate and desire to be a loyal bond servant ( a bond servant is one who serves out of free will) unto Him.
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” — Ursula LeGuin
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with walking with me throughout this adventure called life. It is in following You that we have traveled amazing paths and accomplished incredible feats together. I praise You in the name of He who is the light that I follow of the trail of life Jesus Christ. Amen
May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
