Thank God for technological advancements, now a lot of things have been made easier!
Even though these things come with their positive and negative sides, there is so much we can do that will impact lives positively. So let us all try hard to maximize the positives to the glory of God.
I look around me and every corner i spot people with smartphones that are touchscreen, i barely find phones with hard keypads.
But i realized that almost every smart touchscreen phone i come across including mine has a cracked screen. lol
One thing is that, the very good brands with high specifications costs a fortune, oh yeah i am not exaggerating, some can actually buy plots of land!
That being said, after getting those phones, we also need to put measures in place to protect them because getting them fixed also comes at a high price, sometimes very close to the amount at which it was bought.
If you are reckless enough, you will definitely need an anti-crack screen protector and all the other anti’s plus a hard body cover.
So that at least your heart will not jump out of its place once your phone leaves your hand.
Now what am i driving at with my long talk?
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Because of the love God has for us, He could not watch us go through the darkness of this world with all the pain associated with it, so while we were lost and could not find our way, He made a way where there was no way through His son Jesus Christ.
The scriptures below explains further
1 Corinthians 7:23
You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings.
1 Corinthians 6:20
You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Just imagine someone buys an expensive phone like the latest iPhone model for you as a gift, what then must you do so the person does not regret giving it to you?
You must keep the phone well, and since it is fragile and can break easily it must be protected and taken care of so that the person’s heart will be relieved by the decision he made by giving you such a gift.
The same way God gave us a precious gift more than anything money can ever buy, a priceless gift we did not deserve.
Since we have been bought we do not own ourselves and so we must live to please Him.
Whatever we do with our lives must bring honor to the name of the One who owns us.
So i pause, ask yourself this question and answer yourself before moving on.
Is whatever i am doing now worthy enough to bring honor to God?
We do not also forget that we are humans and as the saying goes to err is human…
Challenges and trials are bound to happen in our lives, that is why we must put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, we may be able to stand.
( Ephesians 6:13)
We cannot afford to destroy our new bodies and our new identity in Christ, the one bought with the blood of Jesus!
We cannot make God regret for giving us Jesus!
therefore let us live right.
May God help us all.
Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for the gift of life. You are indeed worthy of my praise. I do ask that you will look deep within me and cleanse my heart of any filth that whatever I do will be acceptable unto you.
It is in you I live, move and have my being. You are my source and I have no other God but you.
Help me to always treasure the priceless gift you gave to me, and help me work towards not losing this precious gift.
Give me the grace and strength to stand the test of time till the second coming my savior Jesus Christ.
Thank you for making your ears attent unto my prayers, in Jesus’ name have I prayed, Amen.
