THEME: THE FIG TREE
“Whoever keeps the fig tree will eat its fruit; So he who waits on his master will be honored.”
-He who cultivates, fertilize, prunes and tends to his fig tree, during rainy seasons and drought will eat its fruit. But lazy hands make one poor and diligent hands bring wealth (Proverbs 10:4). Further, a servant who serves his master faithfully, prudently and diligently shall receive recompense and honor in due time. According to Matthew 25:21, if the servant is prudent, then the master will say to him, well done good and faithful servant; thou has been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things, enter into the joy of the Lord. It is through faith even though sometimes we go through tribulations, which produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope (Romans 5:2-4). Hope that keeps us going knowing that tomorrow will be a better day. In our work, calling, associations, relationships, and faith in Christ that produces a great reward. We are called to watch that we do not lose what we have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully (2 John 1:8). We know that Jesus is coming soon and we are remind to watch, and stay alert for He will come like a thief in a time when no one knows. In the parable of the ten virgins, five were wise and five; foolish. The wise had extra oil and when the master delayed, they were able to keep their torches lit. The foolish on the other hand; had no option but to go buy extra oil, and when they came back, the door was closed and they were locked out of the heavenly kingdom. Let us then be diligent in all that we do, being faithful to watch for no one knows the time nor the hour when the Son of Man is coming.
We exalt You our God and King, for only You are greatly to be praised. We will praise Your name forever and ever. Everyday we will sing Your praises and extol Your name. Great are You Lord our God and most worthy to be praised. No one can fathom Your greatness and Your holiness transcends to all generations. One generation will commend Your works to another and tell of Your mighty acts. We will speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty and meditate on Your wonderful works. We will tell of the power of Your awesome works and proclaim Your great deeds. We will celebrate Your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of Your righteousness. Only You Lord are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love, forgive us our sins and cover us with Your precious blood. Help us to keep watch and keep our lamps on so that we may not loose our reward. Blot all the names of Your people from the book of death and write all our names in the book of life, we humbly implore You. Guide us Holy Spirit to serve You diligently in our work and all that You have entrusted unto us that we may receive our reward. Sharpen our skills and talents that we may bear much fruit as You require of each one of us. Bless the work of our hands and make all our plans succeed according to Your will. Direct us in our journey of faith and draw us close to Yourself; Holy Spirit. Help us to keep watch in patience, perseverance, faith, hope, love, prayer and thanksgiving like the five wise virgins so that we may dwell with You forever. Only You Lord are good to all and compassionate to all You have made, have mercy on us and fill us with Your divine wisdom. All Your creation will praise You Oh Lord and all Your saints will extol You. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures through all generations. You are faithful to all Your promises and loving toward all Your creation, all our confidence is in You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
