Today's Inspiration: Many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:14. God loves those who respond to His calling for a purpose to execute His plan. What is the plan God requires of you to execute? If you have done what He has called you to, you will receive a great reward.
How will He judge us will be what the Gospel says. Our righteousness must be more than that of the Pharisees.
The Pharisees knew that Jesus was revealing the condition of their heart and they were so fearful that they wanted Jesus out of the way. Matthew 21:45-46. Jesus further pointed out that the kingdom of God will be taken away from us if we don't bear fruit and given to those who are bearing fruit. V43. For us to bear fruit, we need to tend to our vineyard with tender care. We can prepare the ground, plant the seed on the plowed land but it's God who makes it grow and not ourselves. We have our part of diligence to play for us to bear fruit. Watching over our own life is important.
Remember this is the time of the Lord's favor. He will answer all your prayers and renew you to youthfulness and shine in your life. Already many people have their prayers answered beyond comprehension. God is no respecter of persons. He will not turn away anyone who desperately need His help and believe in Him. God be praised.
Prayer: O Lord God make be an instrument of righteousness and help me to observe Your statutes that I may enjoy your Light all the days of my life. Thank You for blessing my coming in and going out both now and forevermore.
