Topic: Unfinished Business
Text: Revelation 3:1-2
“To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of Him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.
Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.” Amen
Sometimes we tend to overlook and take for granted provisions that the grace of God makes for us. We appear alive in church and before everyone, yet in our closets we know things are different. Our spirit man could be gasping for life because of our disconnection from God.
We allow sin to brew right under “the grace” while neglecting those virtues required to sustain the favour of God on our lives. In the end, we look and act religious, but we are actually far from God and His will for us.
Brethren, this is a wake up call for us all. Let us return back to the virtues of prayer, obedience, purity, humility, Bible study, patience, service, diligence and generosity. We know God, and all that He requires of us at the office, home, church and school. Let’s get into action and not lurk around with excuses; Jesus comes soon — His reward with Him.
Today and now is the time to gather all our arsenals and get back up on our feet to finish the “every God business” that remains unfinished. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you walk in the spirit so you do not gratify the desires of the flesh. Strength to perform, the Lord will provide.
