There is something I learned a long time ago and it has served me well these many years – that God has claimed ownership over the earth and everything in it and He has claimed the world and all who live in it. Since He is the One who created it, that makes sense.
So when it comes to walking on this road that He has charted for me, there is a temptation and belief that today we have to put on perfection and holiness. Well, actually, it is what He has asked of all followers of Christ, we just sometimes try to ignore that part of our call. We have to come to Him with clean hands and a pure heart, with men deciding not to cheat and women who decide not to seduce.
Our mandate is rather simple – keep God at our side. With God’s help we can do this. This is what God-seekers and God-questers do.
So instead of being sleepyheads when it comes to following Jesus, let’s wake up and invite this King of Glory into our lives and be prepared and battle-ready for the day.
