TEXT: LUKE 1:74-75
(74) That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
(75) In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
KEY VERSE: PHILIPPIANS 2:16
Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
We are in danger of laboring in vain, if we are not able to bring people to perfection. If we cannot bring you to this state of holiness, then our labor over you and preaching is in vain. If we helped you to be born again, but we could not make you holy, then our labor is in vain because you cannot go to heaven; for without holiness, no man shall enter heaven. Hebrews 12:14.
Although you can be appointed to be a leader, your position cannot give you Heaven. No! You make heaven by your holiness. You can be given a gift, or even a promotion but not heaven. When true preachers finish their course and wear the crown and look for those they have labored on in heaven, but they do not show up; it is very painful, as if the labor is in vain. All the fasting and the prayers are in vain, because eventually you did not enter Heaven. What has the teacher benefitted, if he was not able to graduate a student who was later expelled? What is the benefit of the church, pastor, and ministry, if they cannot make someone holy?
That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
When people do not know about holiness, and have not attained holiness, what benefit is it to that ministry, or denomination. When the pastors of that denomination do not know holiness, attain holiness and do not work in holiness, what then is the benefit? What is the benefit of you being here if you cannot be holy, perfect, complete and completely righteous? Go back and take your decision again, except you are living the Christian life for mere benefit on earth. Or maybe you want people to just address you as a Christian or call you after your church. But, if it is for heaven, then you will have to change for good. It is a high, holy and heavenly calling. Practice it with interest!
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Without complete holiness, we cannot make Heaven.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Holiness is the beauty of Believers…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Genesis 42-43; Matthew 13:33-58
