Busy Until the End: a Reflection on Psalm 145, Zechariah 3:1-10, Revelation 4:1-8 and Matthew 24:45-
The LORD watches over all who love him and will destroy the wicked. These are the words of the psalmist. There is comfort here. Vindication belongs to God. And, these words keep me focused on my mission; the Great Commission. If followers of Jesus in general, and leadership in our churches specifically, will walk in the ways of God and keep his requirements, we will be blessed and many lives will be changed. The wicked will be transformed and find a better way to live in Jesus. Transformation is exciting. I want it more in my life and I most certainly for those who have yet to come to a personal knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ. God is holy and the blessed follower of Jesus will be the one who is still busy with the harvest at Jesus’ second coming. Much to do. Much to celebrate. Much to learn and experience when it comes to walking with God.
