An Immeasurable Tragedy
Where would you like be? Who would you like to be? What would you have liked to accomplish? What would you like to own?
(Did you make your list? No? Why are you still reading? Oya, stop reading and go do your list first! Lol!)
Anyway, hoping you have done your list let me continue my gist. You know, I just love Dr. Okey Onuzo. His words just have this profound impact on me. He speaks so clearly and so directly. I mean, this Sunday, the tone of his voice when he used the words ‘immeasurable tragedy’ to describe what it would be for any of us to miss heaven would make any one sit up and think deeply about his/her life, here and after. That is the effect this man has on me every time I listen to him. He is just a classic man of God. And indeed, it would be an immeasurable tragedy if I miss heaven after all I have heard, seen, learned, understood and experienced. After all that God has done, in my life, to make sure that eternal life is mine! It really, truly will be. I shall not in Jesus name! I just must not. Neither must you.
Now back to my question. And your answers.
Let’s take a look at your list. I am sure you had some professional/career goals, some financial goals, some of you would have academic goals, Status goals, even health and relationship goals but tell me, how many of you had any spiritual goals on your list? And even if you did, what number was it? One or Five or Ten? Be real now! The truth is many of us have so many plans; so much ambition and these are driving us hard and fast that we have lost sight of what our chief ambition should be - Making Heaven. What an immeasurable pity!
Like Dr. Onuzo said, I am not saying we should be NFAs (people with ‘no future ambition’). All I am asking of you and I is that we pursue all these other ambitions EVER expecting and EVER conscious of the truth that Jesus Christ can come anytime and with each passing day, that ‘anytime’ is getting closer and closer. Our main ambition should be spiritual. As we grow in all other areas of life, we should be striving to deepen our personal loyalty to God. We should be moving to a place of consistent Christ-likeness. In short, we should live every day as if it were our last cos the truth is, it just might be. And it will be so sad if your time comes and you are not ready because you were busy achieving temporal goals. That would be such a sad waste of life and time.
Yes, that would be an immeasurable tragedy.
Please think about it.
P. S. Read the book of Revelations. It will help. I will share more on tthe benefits of doing this later on. Dr. Okey Onuzo is right, when you read this book of the Bible, even if you do not understand it all, you KNOW you do not want to be in the 'second batch'. You must make The Rapture.
