I had been looking for this write up since forever. it has been coming back to me for weeks now, i know i definitely needed this reminder and thought it wise to share with you guys too.
A scenario just came to me as I lay here. So let’s say your parent/guardian sends you out with backpack and tells you to run some errands for him(her) and he says in the bag is money,a map and everything else you’d need to get it done. If you get lost, confused or forget what He sent you to do, call him, He’d remind you or redirect you if necessary but He needs you to get it done before you come back home. Then you return home, couldn’t or didn’t have time to do what he asked because you were distracted by other things but you expect your parent/guardian to be excited because I mean who cares that you couldn’t get it done, you are back home!!! Right??? That’s the most important thing or?
Doesn’t it seem familiar though…..
Well some of us believe that we are Christians only for heaven.. our whole focus and agenda of living right is to avoid hell. Yassss Heaven is home and as much as we should be eager to go back home we should also be eager to want to know why We are here in the first place and work at accomplishing what we were sent out here for. Being Christian shouldn’t be about being a tourist here on earth, being religious by obeying laws just so we guarantee our spots back at home. It should be way more, We need to build a relationship with Him and find out why we were sent here. God sent us here with our backpacks(our hearts) Where He put everything we need, He gave us a Helper with the map(The Holy Spirit) and said if you get lost or confused just call on Him and He’d tell you what to do.
We have work to do here for the Kingdom. Heaven should be on our minds alright and we should never lose sight of that. In our eagerness to ran home, let’s ask ourselves, Have we done all He sent me to do? Did we even bother to find out his plan when He sent me here? Are we ready to boldly say I used what you gave me and multiplied it?
I urge you to read the parable of the talents in your free time (Matthew 25:14-30).
The master said ‘well done you good and faithful SERVANT …… Enter into the joy of your master’. In the end, Our father just like the master in that story is going to come and settle accounts (vrs 19) with the talents He entrusted you with and it would really be a shame to be the servant who buried his, did nothing to multiply it and returned it to the master just as the master had given it to him. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t want to be him. let fulfilling purpose be as important as going Home …
