Topic: Appointment With The Master
[Seeds of Destiny 25 October 2019 Devotional]
It is the consciousness of consequence that imparts caution to action.
SCRIPTURE: And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. – Revelation 22:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is the consciousness of consequence that imparts caution to action.
Appointment can be understood as an arrangement to meet someone at a particular place and time.
It is important to note that appointment goes hand-in-hand with preparation – be it a divine appointment or an earthly appointment. The question is, how prepared would you be if our Master Jesus Christ gives you an appointment to meet with Him today? If the King of Kings summons you now, could you meet Him the way you are now?
If you were told that Jesus Christ wants to see you now, would you meet Him with your conscience that is smeared with compromise? Would you be meeting Him holding grudge in your heart against that person? Would you meet Him with those artificial things that have transformed your face, making you to look like someone? Would you meet Him with that lifestyle of pretense? You laugh or smile with someone as though you are happy with them but your heart speaks otherwise.
The truth is, when we get to eternity there will be a lot of surprises, ‘I am a Pastor or a Church worker’ will not mean anything to God then.
What will matter is what you would be comfortable with when you appear in the Presence of Jesus and your conscience is justified. What do you think you would have to change in your life if you were told that Jesus is waiting to see you? Change it now! Adjust your life now because one day you will appear before Him on the judgment day (Hebrews 9:27).
REMEMBER THIS: It is the consciousness of consequence that imparts caution to action
Take out time today to reflect on your life; the way you are right now, are you prepared to meet Jesus?
Adjust whatever needs to be adjusted in your life now in order to be fit to meet the Master.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I make demands on Your grace to live ready for Your soon coming. Help me to maintain a godly character and lifestyle that would give me access to Your Presence, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
