KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 12:11 KJV” Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord”;
In the book of revelations, the Lord said the following to the Laodicean church, Rev 3:15 KJV” I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot”. The Lord does not want anyone to be cold in any way. He definitely wants everyone to be hot. He will not tolerate any Lukewarmness too. The lukewarm are neither cold nor hot. The Lord says, He will spew such people out of His mouth. (Rev 3:16). In these days that we are not supposed to gather as church groups, you can easily get cold or lukewarm.
Our key scripture tells us not to be slothful, but to be fervent or aglow in the Spirit for the Lord. You would have to avoid every lifestyle that does not build your faith strong. Be careful the things you watch or listen to on social media. Avoid chats that would not strengthen your faith in God. Read more of the scriptures. If you are living with
brethren who are Christians, then set times for prayer, and pray as a family. You may choose certain days to fast as well. It is easy to get Christian literature in electronic formats these days. Take advantage of such opportunities and set goals to read a number of books. You have to be fervent in spirit serving the Lord.
Events in our world point to a soon return of our Lord Jesus. It may be later, yet it is always better to be ready. The Lord should not come to you as a thief in the night. 1Th 5:4 KJV “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” Please take heed to the following Biblical counsel Rom 13:11 KJV “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed” .Please cast off every work of darkness and walk in the light or the day. Live in anticipation of the Lord’s return. Pray always that the Lord would count you worthy of the rapture.
I walk in the light and have cast off every unfruitful work of darkness. I live in anticipation of the rapture, if it should happen at any moment. I know I am ever ready to meet my Lord.
Romans 13:12 KJV” The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light”.
Romans 13:14 KJV “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof”.
