Apostle Grace Lubega
Luke 9:62(KJV); And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
In this Christian walk, I have seen people bend under the pressure of ministry that has caused them to give up and abandon the cause of the gospel, feeling betrayed by the things they once gave their hearts to.
They look back at the lives they once lived and prefer them to the obligations of service and the demands for selflessness required from any soldier of the kingdom.
The Bible is very clear in its opinion of such Christians. Our theme scripture reveals that “they are not fit for the kingdom of God.”
Think about it.
When you quit from the noble work of the Kingdom, heaven weighs you and finds you unworthy and unfit for divine assignment.
You must treat Kingdom service with the respect it deserves. It is not the kind of duty that you drift in and out of at your own convenience.
Keep your hand on the plough, serve with diligence and excellence. No matter how rough the seas of life may become, never allow yourself to be disillusioned out of service to God.
You are a soldier, serve with the fortitude of one whose allegiance is not merely to men but it is to the Most High God.
His name be praised!

GOLDEN NUGGET: You must treat Kingdom service with the respect it deserves. You are a soldier, serve with the fortitude of one whose allegiance is not merely to men but it is to the Most High God.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. My heart is given to the service of the Kingdom and it is with diligence and excellence that I serve. I never draw back because my heart is sold out to this great cause.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
