Never take life for granted. We hear this all the time. In fact we hear it so much that we don’t really hear it anymore, it is one of those sayings that seems to come into one ear and out the other.
Our bible talks about this very thing many,many times. In fact in JAMES 4:14 it is written : Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Clement of Alexandria who lived from 150 until 215 A.D. said that ALL OUR LIFE IS A CELEBRATION FOR US; WE ARE CONVINCED, IN FACT, THAT GOD IS ALWAYS EVERYWHERE. WE SING WHILE WE WORK…WE PRAY WHILE WE CARRY OUT ALL LIFE’S OTHER OCCUPATIONS. In these words we are reminded that this day is GOD’S creation and is to be treasured and savored.
In other words we should concentrate on the day we are in with smiles on our faces and kind words on our lips. After all this is God’s day and he has given us clear instructions on how to use it. We are commanded to rejoice and be glad. So LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN!!!!!!
In 1 PETER 1:3-7 We are reminded that thru the crucifixation and resurrection of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST our future is reserved in HEAVEN. We may have to suffer a little grief or trials here on earth, These come simply to prove that your faith is genuine and of greater worth than gold or anything else.
We all go thru trials and temptations in our lives but as long as we keep our eyes on the prize and live like it says in 1 PETER 2:11-12 abstain from sinful desires that wage war on us daily,live such good lives as we move about daily that, even as they make fun of our faith and attack us from all sides and accuse us of being wrong,they still see our good deeds and kindness and by doing this they see the Glory of God.
In tonight’s live service I will be using the following scripture james 4:14,1 peter 1:3-7,1 peter 1: 13-15,1 peter 2:11-12,luke 17:11-19.
