Topic: What Are You Alive For?
To be without prayer, study of the Word, praying in the spirit and worship, and still feel normal is a challenge. It is like a man satisfied without oxygen.
SCRIPTURE: For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: For a person to live in sin, stay disconnected from the Presence of God and feel normal is a disaster about to happen.
We understand from Scriptures that Abraham, without a doubt existed in his days as a generational blessing. He lived a life that even demons envied. Abraham is looked upon by everyone as a highly unusually fortunate personality.
Now, what was Abraham’s secret? He was alive for only one thing and only one person, and that is Jehovah EL SHADDAI. He refused to give glory to any man for his blessings.
Now, in order to exist as a generational blessing, there are questions for us to answer and if we can answer them correctly, then our blessing in this generation cannot be contested, and in eternity, it is confirmed:
What are you alive for? (Philippians 1:21).
If it is not Christ, then there is no need to be alive. When your time to depart comes and you are no longer alive, what will be the implication of your absence?
Who is the strength of your confidence in life?
Some trust in their beauty and others trust in their certificates. Some even trust in their spiritual activities but who is the strength of your confidence?
What drives you?
What can be called your greatest passion on earth, to make money or to make impact? Is it to please God or to please self or people?
What gives you your greatest pleasure in life?
What is it that gives you your greatest excitement in life?
Beloved, for a person to live in sin, stay disconnected from the Presence of God and feel normal is a disaster about to happen. To be without prayer, study of the Word, praying in the spirit and worship, and still feel normal is a challenge. It is like a man satisfied without oxygen. Live with eternity in mind and you will be a generational asset to your generation and to the Kingdom of God.
REMEMBER THIS: For a person to live in sin, stay disconnected from the Presence of God and feel normal is a disaster about to happen.
Ask yourself the questions in this study.
Live with the consciousness of eternity always.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to be eternity-conscious. Let my life be free from sin and guilt, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
