We give glory to God on this day for the great mercy that he has had to us, because, when we were lost in our crimes and sins He raised us, put us clothes, gave us water, dried our tears and made us walk the true way. We really thank God for all that and at the same time we ask Him to help us never deviate from the path that has been set for us.
God has been too good to us. It’s like when we have a friend who is for us more than a brother, who does us great favors and is always there for us, but there comes a time when we begin to reject that friend, in what way? A person can be rejected in a thousand ways, in the same way, we can also reject God in a thousand ways, it is not just saying that we will not accept Jesus, but doing things that are not to His liking, and we know well what does not please God, and we must be mature enough to understand this.
Remember that we have a friendship with God, and this friendship makes us different from the people who are out there, so, we must feed this friendship, we must be upright. We can not walk rejecting the grace of God! And there is no greater privilege than serving Him. Can you understand that?
The author of the Hebrews wrote:
25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.
We must understand well where we are standing. God has given us an unshakeable kingdom, for which we must be grateful. We can not be christians that only sit down on a bench in the church or hypocrites “christians” doing what we want as if there is no God in the heavens who is watching us. We must serve God with fear and reverence, like that husband who wants to please his wife.
Brethren, let us raise our hands and bend our paralyzed knees. Let’s not stop, let’s take strength and encouragement and walk in the good way.
