Hebrews 12:28 (KJV) Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear
Morris could not pray as he used to, nor could he walk in the level of spiritual authority he once enjoyed, not because he was walking in any “known sin”, but because he was handling the assignments of God in his life with levity. He was not as committed to the work of God like he was committed to his money-making job. But things happened to make him realize that his communion with the Lord was more important than his job or anything else. Indeed, his good health and wealth were dependent on this.
As he sought the Lord to understand why he could not connect with heaven like before, he realized for the first time that heaven was counting on him to accomplish certain assignments on the earth, and failing was considered to be a wicked sin in heaven. He was already failing because he did not give priority to his kingdom assignments.
There are people who should not go to hell if you fulfill the call upon his life, but failing means they could end up in hell because there was no one to reach out to them and disciple them. Do you see why the Lord referred to the servant who buried his talent as a wicked and slothful servant? (see Matt 25:14-30).
Whether you are representing Christ in the marketplace, or as a preacher, what heaven looks out for is that you are representing Christ well, living a life whose goal is to make Christ known. We are witnesses unto Christ, and God has placed us in different places to represent Him. Most of the preaching we do is with our character. Our words become so much more potent when our character is accurate.
Go into today remembering that whoever you are and wherever God has placed you, you are expected to serve the Lord. Because God’s Mercy is the precursor to His grace, and God’s mercies are new every morning, remember to find renewed grace each day for the assignment God has given you.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me never forget that I am your representative here. Help me represent you well. Amen.
