Having a blessed fellowship with God: Do you feel bored and lonely
because your heart is empty and your life is meaningless? No one and
nothing in this world, not even human religions, philosophies, worldly
wealth or pleasures, can satisfy your thirsty soul or fill your empty
heart. "Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But
whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never
thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of
water springing up into everlasting life" (John 4:13-14). The closer we
walk with God, the more we enjoy a blessed fellowship with Him and are
truly satisfied, "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his
Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). God is the source of all
blessings. So following Him we shall enjoy all His blessings and say,
"Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee" (Ps 73:25).
Having a good testimony to please God: "So then they that are in the
flesh cannot please God" (Rom 8:8), and "without faith it is impossible
to please him" (Heb 11:6). The closer we walk with God, the more God
will be pleased with us.
Being caught up when Jesus comes: Enoch was taken up to heaven without
seeing death. If we faithfully walk with God day by day and are still
alive when our Saviour Jesus Christ comes again, we shall be caught up
to meet Him in the air. "Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the
air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thess 4:17). Jesus has
warned us to be watchful, for there can be two persons in one bed, or
two persons grinding together or two persons in the field, "the one
shall be taken, and the other left" (Luke 17:34-36). It is vital for us
to be watchful and to maintain a personal walk with God day by day so
that we will be caught up when our Lord comes.
THOUGHT: Do I truly maintain my personal walk with God?
PRAYER: Lord, keep me walking with Thee in Thy light each day.
