Topic: GOING UP TO GOD
Bible Reading: Romans 14:17-18
📖17….”For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
📖18….For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.”
🔥To dedicate oneself to serve God, is a desire to go up. This is so because by natural instinct, we know God is up. All creatures tend to go up to meet their Creator. Fire burns up, man grows up, trees grow up, even smoke moves up. But because we can’t reach God in our mortal bodies, we can still experience heaven here on earth by adhering to Romans 14:17-18. And according to Isaiah 54:17B, righteousness is a gift from God for His servants; or children of God that serve God as servants.
🔥🔥The gate and the way to life according to the Lord Jesus Christ who came from there, are strait and narrow respectively. And that, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for those that think the more meat they have, the better proof that they are tasting heaven on earth to actually taste heaven. The way up to heaven, is down. Which is humility (1 Peter 5:6), not meat and drink. Beloveth, the kingdom of God is not made for people that have enough meat and drink to devour and gulp on earth, rather for those that lead a righteous, peaceful and joyful life in Christ’s Spirit.
🔥🔥🔥So, for a man to taste heaven on earth, he must live as a servant to Christ. He must be acceptable by God, and must be approved of men – Rom 14:18. Once one follows these, God will endow him with the peace and joy, God and saints in glory are enjoying in heaven. Do you still wonder why God says follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord – Hebrews 12:14? Child of God, pursue peace – Psalm 34:14. Live peaceably, righteously and joyfully with all men, so you can ascend up to God.
🙏Precious father, teach me how to taste heaven on earth, for me to press on to it by faith continually, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, turn my eyes and appetite from earthly meat to the meat of your word, so that I will please you daily in all my deeds in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, cause the zeal of your house to consume me as it did Jesus, so I may also end up in heaven, in Jesus’ name.
