GLORIFICATION: GOD’S ULTIMATE FOR YOU – Part 4

Praise the Lord! Another week is here to see the glory of the Lord in the land of the living. To Him alone be all the glory! 

 

On this platform, we shall be concluding in our series captioned - Glorification: God’s Ultimate for You. – Rom 8:29-30

It is written; 

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” 1Cor 9:24-29

 

Recognize that we are all in a race of life and the ultimate goal in every race is to win the prize. This is because every prize-winner is a glory-carrier. Therefore, invariably in every race of life, the prize (glory) is the ultimate and the peak everyone aims at. – Phil 3:14

From the scripture above, Apostle Paul made us to understand in every race you must run. Importantly, it is good to be reminded that we are in the race of life that requires you to consciously be in a run. It’s either you are running with a goal in the race of life or life runs you into the hole of disgrace. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ name!

However, to run and receive the prize (glory), Apostle Paul, made us to understand that it requires Discipline. – 1Cor 9:25

But what is discipline? Simply put, discipline is to become a law to yourself; the ability to control yourself in order to achieve your aims and goals in life. 

 

As Jesus said;

“But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!” – Jn 12:50

He also said;

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” – Jn 9:4

 

Therefore, it is vital to establish “dos and don’ts” that will governs our daily adventure in the pursuit of our life’s goal. Pause a minute – What is your goal in life? What are your sub-goals this week in attaining your ultimate goal in life? What are the ‘dos and don’ts’ that must be put in place this week to further advance you into a greater glory in in the pursuit?

Remember, Jesus further said; “…Follow me, and I will make you…” – Matt 4:19

In conclusion, if we must be made and attain the glorification, He has prepared for us, we must be ready to follow the discipline nature of Christ. I see God empowering us to pay the prize required for the height of His glory ahead this week.

Remain ever blessed.

 

Jesus is Lord!
