Its 6:30am already! exclaimed Mabel, having st an alarm for 6:00am the previous night, she oils now 30mins behind schedule. She might have overslept which made her unaware when the alarm first buzzed. It's Sunday Morning and she has to get to church ⛪ as early as 7:00am as a worker in the church.
Mabel is a devoted Christian and every Sunday she wakes up as early as possible, dresses up and leave for church before Sunday school starts. Not only is she the Choir mistress, she also teaches Sunday school. God makes use of her mightily and almost every church ⛪ member wants to be under her teachings. She always speak with the guide of the Holyspirit who makes her utterances power filled which made it all too easy for her.
She rose up from the bed, took her bath and dressed up for church ⛪ hurriedly. She was 2mins late to church and she underwent punishment alongside other latecomers, they were made to stand outside the church for 15minutesafter which they were allowed in.
The service went well, right from the Sunday school class to the praise and worship session, God used Mabel powerfully. At the end of the service, many converts were recorded during the praise and worship session, God Himself arrested their souls.
Deep down within Mabel,she yearns for more grace from God. Even though she is a vessel unto God and she has been doing the work of God appropriately, there is still a vacuum which she knows exist. People see her as a perfect being basically because of the work she does in the Church. Many parents even pray for their children to be just like her.
The previous week she had a vision where she was referred to as The dead lamp, by the master. She wept and was still weeping when she woke up. Ever since then she has been watchful, vigilant and mindful of everything she does, so that she won't go wrong.
Justice Mabel many of us are battling with sin and though they work for God extraordinarily. We feel they are perfect, but does God recognise us? Does He reckon with our works?
Let's work on ourselves.
May we not be found wanting...
