PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
9th October, 2020.
Topic: EAGERLY WAITING.
Text : Philippians 3:19-21.
19: They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth.
20: But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.
21: He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control. NLT.
Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Philippi bringing to their consciousness that we are citizens of heaven. The letter was absolutely important because some people around them were after earthly things. They were obviously not thinking of heaven.
This world is full of distractions and some things have weight and seduction that can SWAY someone away.
Let me come out this way: the word SWAY has 2 dictionary meanings that will help us here to understand the message Apostle Paul was passing to the Philippi Christians:
1, Controlling influence.
2, Pitching dangerously to one side.
The beautiful things of this world are beaconing on our attention. Devil has a way of making one desire the vain glory of this world.
Sometimes, it appears like you’re on the odd side while those wallowing in sin are appearing perfect in life, and you begin to develop a desire for the pleasure of this world. The Philippi Christians were getting to this point and Apostle Paul considered it absolutely important to write them before they SWAY away.
Remember that to SWAY is to pitch dangerously at one side. The dangerous side is the desire for the pleasure of the world at the expense of our eternal home.
The consciousness that we are citizens of heaven must not leave us and we must earnestly desire Christ’s return as our saviour.
Let me show you the contrast between what was happening and what suppose to happen: Paul expected the Christians at Philippi to desire and eagerly wait for Christ’s coming instead of being swayed away by their desire for the things of world.
It is not possible to be sold out to this world and still desire Christ’s coming, you have to choose one.
Only those who eagerly desire Jesus’ Coming will reign with him, focus on Christ and don’t be sold out to this perishable world. God bless you.
* Help me Lord not to sway away in Jesus name.
* Remove passion for worldly things from my heart.
