How long will you continue to sleep oh church? Why will the door keep being shut at all times. This is a new year and the Lord wants you to keep an open house. You have forgotten your essence, you have forgotten how precious you are to the world, you tends not to remember that without you the people will remain shabby. You have lose your importance but it is time to awake!
Matt 5:13″Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.
14-16″Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
We must keep been salty now, we must cause our light to shine. We have been placed on a hill, let’s radiate God and let the world see. “There can be no true and solid advance in the civilization, in materialism, in human relationships, in home and industry, in the national and international community without the application of the spiritual assets and principles Jesus lived and died for” (Bishop J. O Oyelade). It’s our time, let’s keep an open house and let Jesus reflect to the world.
Happy New Year !!!
