THE PRICELESS MANSION
Imagine building a multibillion dollar mansion that is the talk of your whole City. You used the kind of paint that change colour all by itself; the swimming pool is unmatchable and the cars that are lined up in the garage are outstanding spares. The house has no permanent description as it were.
Then after the house warming ceremony, you and your family members with some visitors, who have come to access and rate the mansion, are in the living room, enjoying your 3D HD television with dessert by the side of everyone, as you take sips of the world's best wine.
And suddenly, the sound of a struck thunder stole a moment of the show. You adjusted your body on that comfort-defined leather chair, and resume to the award winning film.
Momentarily, you saw drops of water on your head. You looked at the 3million Naira television and it made a funny sound not written in the owner's manual. Coming close to it, you discovered water had found its way in, thereby affecting the circuitory...
To cut it short, the roof is leaking! What would you do?
And since people came to access it, do you think you will get a good rating? I guess no.
One thing is sure: you are going to file a lawsuit against the one you gave the contract of the mansion for.
You are the contractor; the priceless mansion is your BODY and the leaking is a dot on your garment. Remember, just a little sin could sweep all your effort of the drain.
"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Gods." (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
"Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof." (Romans 6:12).
"And there shall in no way enter into it anything that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they who are written in the Lamb's book of life." (Rev 21:27)
PRAY WITH ME:
Oh Lord, teach me to keep myself unspotted from the world.
Father teach me to walk in the path of righteousness all the day of my life. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
