RAISE US UP, LORD

2 Corinthians 4:8-12 (New International Version):
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

I've always asked the Lord to remind me of who I am, who I really am. Because I do not want to forget why I am here on this earth, manifested in this time and generation, I do not want to forget why I am serving Him. Opposed to what the whole world thinks, I believe-no, I know, that living does not merely consists of raising a family, working, getting an education, etcetera...although those things are well and good, I'm not against that lest anyone misunderstand what I'm trying to say but I truly believe that all of us, every single one of us were born and brought to existence to be given the great opportunity to know our Maker, to know, to serve and follow him.

I guess it's no secret that at the end of the day, we are going to face God and account for every single thing we have done, acted and decided on whilst here on earth. Everything would be exposed under His righteous light- all sins even our secret sins and there's nobody there to point a finger on for blame, except yourself. It's just you and Him when that time finally comes.

Despite our achievements, despite the riches we have accumulated on this earth, despite the fame, the popularity, despite the elite social status we might have, the millions of money in the bank, even if we have all the Phd's, degree's in all the universities of the world - all of that would not matter, friend. Nothing else stands and it will all boil down to one thing- have you served Him or not ?

Our God is not a respecter of persons. He does not look at our achievements, our wealth- that is just rubbish to him. But there is one thing he does take notice of- our heart. He looks at our heart. He is looking for genuine repentance, genuine desire towards Him, a genuine walk and not just being a half-baked, professing christian. It's high time we take Him seriously, let us not tarry any longer.

Lord, may you find us ready at your coming...may you always bring to our remembrance who we are and what we are here for. May we be not distracted by all the world's glitter and gold, and all it's form of entertainment which was designed by the enemy to draw us away from you...Lord Jesus, draw us closer to your side, may we walk beside you while you hold our hand and see us through all the storms of this life. Calm all the unrests in our lives and most of all forgive us of all our errors and wayward ways. Restore us, Lord Jesus. May we grow as mature battlefront christian warriors, ready to fight and overcome. May we be your humble manifestations on this earth so that other people may know You have resurrected from the grave, alive in our midst. Help us Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE ALL GLORY, AND HONOUR AND POWER ! Amen.
