Memorise: Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 1 Thessalonians 5:6 KJV

Read: 1 Thessalonians 5:5-8

The Bible says in Philippians 4:5, Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. This saying and the obedience to those words will guide you from every attraction to sin. You need a daily reminder as touching your heavenly citizenship less you forget that you are not of this world. Therefore, keep things easy and simple. Be moderate in your lifestyle and live as though Christ will show up in the next moment. You need the Jesus kind of simple life to make it to heaven at last. No style of this world will be acceptable to God. Therefore, watch for the coming of the Lord with great soberness of the heart.

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Revelation 3:11 KJV

Don’t lose your crown to another man through carelessness and excessive living. Be temperate in all things and watch with prayerfulness. Constantly remembering that you are of God through the Blood of reconciliation. Jesus says: If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. John 15:19. Your friendship with the world will eventually make you an enemy of God.

Therefore, be sober beloved don’t love the world but rather love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and spirit so you can make it to heaven for your desired final rest.

Pray with me: Father, give me the grace to live for you and to watch till I see you in glory with unwavering soberness and prayerfulness.
