Open Heaven 7 August 2020: [Friday] – Play Your Part

PLAY YOUR PART – Friday August 7th 2020
Memorise: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7
Read: Matthew 25:1-12 (KJV)
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Bible in one year: Jeremiah 4-6, Hymnal: Sing hymn 19
As Christians, we have a inheritance. God told Abraham that in blessing, He would bless him and since we are children of Abraham, his blessings are ours.

However, the Almighty God who deploys these blessings is holy and very hardworking Hebrews 11:6 says it is the diligent that God will reward. Thus, if you want to enjoy any reward from God, you must say goodbye to laziness, and indolent people. In Proverbs 13:20, the Bible says:

“He that walketh with the wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

Stop being slothful; drop your lazy friends. Spend every minute productively. Stop spending countless hours on social media, just lazing around. The extent to which you will fulfil destiny depends on the quantum of effort you are willing to put in. The brightness of any fire is determined by the fuel applied. 1st Corinthians 15:41 tells us:

“There is one glory of sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the star: for one star differeth from another star in glory.”

Open Heaven 7 August 2020 Friday: Key Point

You cannot just keep singing ‘Abraham’s blessings are mine’; you must be ready to put in the work. Jesus, during His earthly ministry worked so hard that, one day, in the middle of a storm, He fell asleep. The testimony about His work ethic is thus:

“But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.”
John 5:17

Even though God had said, many years before I joined that the RCCG is a covenant church that would have parishes all over the world, I as the General Overseer still work very hard for this prophecy to be fulfilled. Whatever God is involved in involves hard work because He cannot work with lazy people (Amos 3:3).
Key Point
God’s plan for you can only be fulfilled with your cooperation.
