Hi there, so ‘leke Okueso is on board this beautiful Sunday afternoon and he shares his thoughts on a very vital issue. Do enjoy.
Many times we assume that we are the same with our folks and friends simply because we are close and intimate, spend more time together, in the same gathering etc. At other times, simply because we are in the same class or office working, but most often much later we come to realise it isn’t so when one is preferred over the other in some life’s vital selections.
In Luke: 17. 34, Jesus said “I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.”
The one left out would wonder how the close pal whom they lived and stayed together prepared himself to be more qualified than me? Didn’t we become born again during the same period and how come he has gone this far spiritually in maturity , spiritual gifts , grace etc?
My friend, don’t be surprised! That you are friends doesn’t mean he is not developing himself in other areas or devotedly building himself on his most holy faith PRAYING IN THE HOLY GHOST while you are still busy secretly compromising, giving excuses for not dealing with what you should deal with and delaying in responding to God in areas He intends dealing with in your life.
You are there struggling with God in things or people He demands you cut off or things he asked you to stop and For YEARSSSSS, you parried the demands and you think your friend is same with you not realising he is responding to God and to life positively?
FRIEND, DONT BE SURPRISED WHEN HE IS SELECTED AND PREFERRED OVER YOU!!!
Luke17: 36. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
You wonder why the same person you are IN THE SAME FIELD of study/course or COMPANY got that greater opportunity and position while you were denied? He must have been developing Himself in areas you were not. Perhaps he enrolled for an online course to boost his chances or he did so many other things to improve on himself.
As Luke: 17. 30 says…” Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”
37. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.
EAGLES DON’T FLOCK TOGETHER LIKE CHICKENS DO. They soar high in the sky far above all birds. They have great foresight and plan ahead of time. They(THE EAGLES) will be selected and gathered where the BODY (the REAL THINGS) of life are happening while the unprepared will be left to scout for the remnants that drop from the sky, the heights where the SELECTED EAGLES MINGLE.
Now summarily…..how prepared are we for that which we are expecting or praying for? Be it career wise, spiritual, ministerial or ultimately the coming of our Lord Jesus?
Think on these things. Do have a fulfilling week.
