*“Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. But if that evil servant says in his heart, my master is delaying his coming, and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, themaster of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of…”Matthew 24:46, 48-49*

The seemingly delay of our Master Jesus Christ is not an occasion or excuse for idleness, complacency, unfaithfulness, reckless and riotous living. Rather, it is an opportunity and another chance to be more diligent, committed and to get yourself fully prepared and adequately ready to meet Him whenever He returns.

Never give up or sleep off in compromise or in unequal yoke with the unbelievers for whatever reason. Rather, always make the most of every opportunity you are given daily to live for Christ, pursue righteousness, examining yourself daily to ensure you are still in the faith, live peacefully with everyone and invest your life and living for the growth and expansion of His Kingdom here on earth.

The moment He comes, every opportunity to live for Christ and serve Him shall cease and there will be no second chance. All that remains is for you to stand before Him to render account of your pilgrimage on earth. So, I pray the Lord will help you to take heed to yourself, give your best to the Master while you are still alive and you will not be found wanting on the judgement Day. Good morning and do have a great week.

Your brother,
