FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN WORDS OF THE WEEK
GET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER
2 Kings 20 : 1 In those days was Hezekiah sick
unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the
son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him. Thus saith the Lord, set
thine house in order; for thou shall die, and not live.
2 Then he turned his face
to the wall, and prayed unto the Lord, saying,
3 I beseech
thee, O Lord, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and
with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight.
And Hezekiah wept sore.
What we learn from this story is that the Lord our God holds
our life in the palm of his hands. It is up to him weather we live or die. We
also learn the things that have value to our Lord, which we can use to bargain
with our God. We must notice what Hezekiah did not mention: His title,
his servants, his army or the things he owned. He mentioned, that he walked
before the Lord in truth, with a perfect heart, and did what
was good in the sight of the Lord his God.
In the end, only the things that matter to God will count
for us. Get your house in order now for tomorrow is promised to no man.
