Beloved, Welcome to this post.

It’s been sometime. I trust that we are all excellent. Thank GOD for HIS Faithfulness and Mercies. HIS steadfast love never ceases.

The topic is Staying in the Balance.

A balance between the physical and spiritual is being a 6am/6pm Christian. At 6am or 6pm the long hand of the clock points upwards while the short hand points downwards. Beloved, we are to affect lives for JESUS. Making notable, distinctive marks on the face of the earth.

Psalm 24:1 tells us ‘The Earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to HIM.’

Beloved, we are in this world to affect the world but not to be affected by the world’s standard.

1st John 2:16 says : ‘For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the FATHER, but are from this World.’

There is need to place a high premium on our lives – Lives that have been purchased by the Precious Blood of JESUS, Who transformed our lives from darkness to HIS Marvelous Light. Hallelujah.

For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God 1 Peter 1:18-19

Leviticus 17:11a says ‘The life of the body is in its blood.’

HE paid our ransom and delivered us from the kingdom of darkness by HIS Precious Blood which was shed for us on the Cross of Calvary. Consequently, our lives are aligned with JESUS, Who shed HIS Precious Blood for us. Our LORD, Master and Saviour JESUS Christ is the King of Kings and LORD of Lords. HE is our High Priest (Hebrews 3:1).

In line with this, as disciples of JESUS Christ, staying in the balance connotes that we are to live as kings and priests (1 Peter 2:9). Kings have domain. They are in control, they rule, reign, subdue and dominate. Staying in the balance signifies our dominion physically on this earth while also as priests being focused on Heaven. Our communication to Heaven or with Heaven should be 24/7 since we are seated spiritually in Christ JESUS (Ephesians 2:6, Colossians 3:1).

As priests, we draw Strength from HIM by the Holy Spirit to rule, reign and dominate as kings and to intercede as priests. Thus performing our functions as kings and priests.

Beloved, we need to apply ourselves knowing we have only one life to live and a fixed number of years to live on Earth (Psalm 90:12). It cannot therefore be overemphasized that we need to place a great value on our time and life.

According to Daddy G.O Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, ‘Life is not like a football game that can be replayed; we only have one shot at it.’

Deposited in each of us are gifts or talents that the world is waiting for.

Recently, I watched a playlet in which a Christian made it to the Gate of Heaven but he was carrying some luggages. He was welcomed at the gate but was asked what those luggages were for. Surprisingly, they were talents that were given to him to utilise on the face of the earth but he failed to do so probably due to laziness, excuses, procrastination or ignorance. The Christian was scolded and told that those talents were not needed in Heaven, he was told to return to the World and utilise them (remember it was a playlet). He has to die empty.

‘Make your life count, that is the beauty of life.’

This brings to mind a testimony that was shared by a Pastor. A female doctor suddenly went mad, ran out of her office and wandered away. She wandered from one location to another. She was oblivious of herself in that state. She got to a place far from her home and was always seen roaming the streets. Nobody knew her identity. Everyone that saw her just knew she was a mad woman.

One day, as she was passing by a corner shop, she heard the sound of music and began to dance. The singer, a woman of GOD, was a well known Praise and Worship singer. The lyrics of the song bore Worship and Praise to JESUS. So as this ‘mad woman’ danced to the music outside the corner shop on the street, suddenly, something snapped in her. She became conscious of herself and environment and asked where she was. She had been delivered and cured instantly. She regained herself and was taken back to her home. To the Glory of GOD she went back to her profession. There is Power in the Name of JESUS. All Glory to JESUS. Hallelujah.

The person who sang the song was not present at the scene probably may not even hear of what happened. However, her ministry had been purposed for such manifestations.

Beloved, don’t be a 12am or 12pm Christian (the two hands of the clock are pointed upwards with no relevance while on earth) like our friend in the playlet who died with his talents intact unutilised for the establishment of the purpose of GOD on earth.

It is said that the richest treasures are in the grave unutilised.

Beloved, it is not too late to start. You are unstoppable in JESUS Name. Amen and Amen.

Also, please do let us avoid being a 6.30 am/pm Christian who confesses that there is life after now, believes in Heaven but is tied down and focuses only on material things.

We really need to stay in the balance. We must empty all that has been deposited in us in fulfilment of our destiny. The Almighty GOD help us in JESUS Name. Amen and Amen.

Thank you for reading to this point. GOD bless you.

Please if you do not have a relationship with our LORD, MASTER, SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, now is the time of Salvation. Please do not procrastinate as tomorrow may be too late.

What you need to do:

  • Acknowledge that you are a sinner.
  • Ask for forgiveness of your sins.
  • Accept JESUS as your LORD and SAVIOUR.
  • Fellowship with your new LORD.

Please attend a Bible believing Church. The LORD guide you in your journey. Surely, your life can never be the same again.
