We have all probably dreamed of Publisher’s Clearinghouse arriving at our door with balloons and cameras heralding our great rewards. We’ve filled out the form, most of us, at least once in our lives. Who wouldn’t say yes to the knock at the door? Who wouldn’t agree to accept the prize? Who wouldn’t open the door even if we were in our pj’s or without makeup? Imagine trying to clean up everything before we received those special emissaries of cash.
Well we have received a prize much higher than any cash winnings we could ever imagine. We who are born again are ultimate prize winners. And we came to the door and answered the knock on our heart with excitement! I certainly didn’t deserve the call when He came to my life. I would never have been “ready enough” for the King and the prize is beyond my worthiness to receive it. But I sure didn’t turn it down when He called me out of darkness into the Light! That’s our God, the Only Living King of the Universe, who came and changed my heart and yours showered on us great treasures for this life and abundant treasure in the life hereafter.
Oh beloved, are you enjoying your treasures? Are you living in the divine rights of Jesus? Or have you gotten worn out in the earthly, every day, mundane living of this world? God wants you to know this morning that He wants to take up residency within your heart in a fresh and new way! He wants to fill you with fresh oil and wine! He wants to increase your strength, uplift your heart and renew your passion for Him! You may have forgotten what it was like when you first answered His call, but He is here this morning to bring it all back to you. He is also giving you new treasures and increased blessings. He woke you up this morning and allowed your heart to beat so that it would beat only for Him. This is a new day! Forget the troubles that dog you from your past. Remember that Christ has redeemed you from the law – the law of sin and death, the law of trying to be right, and the law of woe is me! He’s put a new law in your heart – the law of love! And a song as well – the song of joy!
God loves you and He’s for you! In the exciting days, on the dreary days, in the happy highways and on the sorrowful roads of life. Rejoice! It’s a great day to be alive for Christ! He has come to awaken His beloved, and that’s you! The King has arrived again to pour out all that you could not even imagine as you receive His blessings and live in the Light of His Wonder Working Power!
