MY GOAL NOW AND IN THE FUTURE!
After sixty years years in Christ, my goal even in the coming year is that I would be more and more like CHRIST! This is because the more I know Christ, the closer, I get to Him. The closer I get to CHRIST, the more I share in fellowship with Him. The more I share in fellowship with CHRIST, the more I will be like Him.
Perhaps, you have heard me say or maybe, you are hearing it for the first time, ‘I will make heaven, and nothing will STOP me from making heaven, I will get there’. Do you know why I am sure that I will get there, because I am putting on His resemblance.
MY LIFE PURSUIT!
Every day of my life, I am pursuing after Him to be more like CHRIST. So that, when I will get home in heaven, I shall be no stranger there. This is because Christ mark shall be on my face, in my character and everything about Him will be seen in me here on earth and then, I will go home. So that in heaven, I will be seen as His young brother.
MY WAKE UP SONG:
Many times, I even woke with a song like this;
” When the beryl gates are opened to sinner save by grace.
When through everlasting portion, I behold my saviour’s face.
when I enter through the mansion of the city bright and fair, I shall have a royal welcome, I shall be no stranger there.
I shall be, no stranger there,
Jesus will my place prepare
He will meet me, He will greet me,
I shall be no stranger there!
THE WONDERS OF REDEMPTION!
Do you know the picture I have in my mind as I imagine this; at my creation, God created me to be like Him. When I missed the way,redemption came and restored me so that I would be like my elder brother, Jesus Christ. Then at the coordination of time, when Christ shall appear, I will be like Him.
MY ROYAL WELCOME IN HEAVEN.
The picture I do have some times in my mind is that I see myself, walking through the beryl gate and perhaps, an over zealous Angel can come around and shout, wait! Wait!! Wait!! As he is shouting, wait! My elder brother, Jesus Christ has already seen His mark on me and He has already stood up to receive me. At that point, another Angel may ask the other Angel that is shouting, wait! Don’t you see that mark? Don’t you see that he is like CHRIST? Instantly, the way would open and I would spend a blessed eternity with God in heaven.
I am challenging you today;’Are you saved, thank God, you are saved!; You were an adulterer, now, you are no longer! You were a thief, now, you’re no longer! You were a murderer, yes, you’re no longer! You were a liar, yes, you are no longer! However, the question now is, ‘Are you like Christ?’. Pursue His likeness, follow after His likeness and His likeness will take you home.
VERY IMPORTANT FACTS.
As you are pursuing His likeness, all these other things, you be easy. There are people that tell you that there are too many laws in the bible. When they talk about it, I don’t know where the laws are because I am pursuing to be like Jesus Christ. From there, every other things are easy and minimal because CHRIST who fulfilled the law, has removed all the difficulties. As result, I no longer see any difficulties in serving God, because all I want is to be like CHRIST!
MY FINAL CHALLENGE!
BE LIKE JESUS IN THE MORNING!
BE LIKE JESUS IN THE DAY!
BE LIKE JESUS IN THE NIGHT!
Any other time, I may be opportune to come your way, please, let me see you being more LIKE JESUS!
THAT’S MY RESPONSE!
