Let’s Guard our hearts Constantly for our Redemption Draws Near

Let's Guard our hearts Constantly for our Redemption Draws Near

Friend’s, The Holy Spirit brought these scriptures to my attention this morning and sensed to share for reading, meditating and contemplating.

Sometimes, most of the times, when God speaks to one, He speaks to all because There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all, in all, and living through all ( Ephesians 4:16) because every soul is a GEM in God’s hands for greater exploits in Him and through Him – Nothing more, nothing less! (Psalm 139:1-end;  Revelation 4:11)

Don’t just Read, don’t just Meditate But  Contemplate with aim of applying in real life situation we face daily. That application becomes what we call discipleship because discipleship is life on life. Discipleship is not theory, it is not just preaching, it is not just teaching, it is not just serving, getting busy with activities inside the four walls of the church. I call those enablers, just 10% of the core.  Discipleship is life on life.  The WORD, Jesus Christ, becoming life in our lives daily as we die to self Life – our preferences, our desires, our wants and our dislikes, ALL, totally tendered, sacrificially at the foot of the cross just as He did, His own life, without struggle. That is the only instruction He gave every one of us as the last instruction of the commander in chief to His soldiers which you and I are. (Matthew 28:18)

Your mission field is wherever you find Yourself, right now, every moment. Starting from your home, to the neighborhood, or community, to your business places or marketplaces, schools etc. That is where you do discipleship, life on life. People are watching you daily, to see if they can find anything Christlike in you and around you, through the fruits of your life.

If we are not reflecting that life, we are nothing more than hypocrites with a capital H. The gospel should outflow out of our lives first before it outflows out of our mouths, then true transformation can take place in our homes, our communities, government, etc through our life as light to a dying and decaying world fast moving towards total annihilation. Jesus promised us that:

‭‭Luke 21:34-36 TPT‬‬
[34] “Be careful that you never allow your hearts to *grow cold.* Be careful that you are not *caught off guard,*   or your hearts will be weighed down with *carousing, drunkenness,* and the *worries of this life,* and *that day* will come *upon you suddenly* like *a trap.* Don’t let me come and find you *drunk or living carelessly like everyone else.* [35] For *that day* will come as a *shocking surprise to all.*  [36] Keep a *constant watch* over *your soul,* and *pray for the courage and grace to prevail over these things that are destined to occur* and that you will stand before the presence of the Son of Man with a *clear conscience.”*

Second scripture that align with the first one is this

*‭‭Revelation 3:14-20 TPT‬‬*
[14] Write the following to the messenger of the congregation in Laodicea,    for *these are the words of the Amen,    the faithful and true witness, the ruler    of God’s creation:* [15] I know all that you do, and I know that you are neither *frozen in apathy* nor *fervent with passion.*    How I wish you were *either* one or the other!  [16] But because you are neither *cold nor hot,* but lukewarm, I am *about to* spit you from my mouth.    [17] For you claim, *“I’m rich and getting richer—I don’t need a thing.”*    Yet you *are clueless* that you’re miserable, poor, blind, barren, and naked!  [18] So *I counsel you* to purchase gold    perfected by fire, so that you can be *truly rich.* Purchase a white garment to cover and clothe your *shameful Adam-nakedness.*   Purchase eye salve to be placed over your eyes so that you can truly see.  [19] All those *I dearly love I unmask and train.*    So *repent and be eager  to pursue what is right.*  [20] Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking.    If your heart is open to hear my voice and you open the door  within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with me.

Third scripture is

*Proverbs 4:23 TPT‬‬

[23] So above all, guard the affections of your heart,  for they affect all that you are. Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring  of life.

Shalom to you and have blessed week in Him
