You Will Receive An Inheritance. - Bro. T. Stephen
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Colossians 3:23,24 “ Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
From the above context we learn that whatever we do we should do sincerely and not be careless with our work. We should work, not to please men but God. For He watches all our work. For the Lord is in Heaven and does what He pleases.He is a God who gives you wealth. Such a God has become your inheritance, since you have made Him the master of your life. Many tell me that they have lost everything in their life. I have nothing left in my life. They would request me to pray. I would pray and tell them that they have lost everything,but they have not lost the God who gives all things.
The God of wonders is within you . And so you have a great wealth that you could not afford to lose it. And that treasure is Jesus Christ. You might have lost your house or your job, or all that you consider as wealth. But since you have not lost the one who grants all the wealth is with you. That is why you are reading this message with great enthusiasm to know what God has in store for you. In case God is not with you then your conscience would be spoilt, and your days would have come to an end. But when you desire to search for God, that itself is an indication that God is within you. He is your wealth He is your inheritance. Since he is within you it is possible for you to get back all that you have lost in life.
Today, God is saying, I will give you all that you have lost in your life. The Bible says, “ For the son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. ”So in case you have lost everything in your life God is able to give you back all that you had lost in life. God has a plan for your life. No one can separate you from God. Therefore do not separate yourself from God just because you have lost everything in your life. Apostle Paul says, nothing can separate us from the love of God. Therefore throw away all that separates you from the love of God and hold on to God and never let go of God from your heart. We need to be careful and alert not to lose Him, as He is the most important inheritance of your life. Some might say, This person is the inheritance of my life. He might have been someone who brought you to this great status in life. So you think and consider him great in life.
Today God is telling one thing very clearly to you. If God did not permit, then even your children could not have helped you. No one could have helped you. If you say this person or that person has been the cause for you to do well in life or grow to a higher level in life then you need to remember that God has allowed that person to help you or be gracious to you or show favour to you. It is good to honour such a person and be grateful to him but above all you should honour God who has been the instrument behind all this, and had introduced that person in your life and through that person God has blessed you.
So you need to honour the Lord God Almighty. Since God has been the inheritance or wealth of your life, God in order to promote you has brought such a person in your life. Jesus has shown favour to you through some person to raise your status in life. This is Gods favour. So you need to give God the first, best place in your life, for it is only because of God you have received favour from any person in your life. The favour shown to you by someone is from God himself. So you have to glorify God for showing favour in the sight of God and men. If you work hard and be sincere in all that you do then you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. God Bless You.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for showing favour and kindness through someone in our life. Help us to be grateful to you all the days of our life. Never to be separated from You. Teach us to walk with wisdom and prudence. May we glorify God for His merciful kindness shown to us through others.
