Daily Fountain 2017 - No Accommodation Problem






Monday May 1
(St. Philip & St. James' Day)

Bible Reading:     John 14: 1 - 15
Topic:         No Accommodation Problem

A young man in one of our big Cities was frustrated when the Court Bailiff and Policemen descended on him early one morning and took him and all his properties to the Area's Chief Magistrate's Court.

He owed rent for 21/2 years.

Even the sight of his pregnant wife did not make the Court's Bailiff change his mind.

Today's passage assures those of us who belong to Jesus that we would have no problems of accommodation in Heaven.

Jesus is in there right now, preparing, furnishing and decorating the place for us.

He boldly tells us in Luke 12: 32 that it is our Father's good pleasure to give us His Kingdom.

However unlike earthly accommodations which we can build or rent for ourselves, those accommodations in Heaven are specifically for those who belong to Jesus and for whom He has promised to come.

It is for those whose names are written in His Book of Life (Rev. 20: 11 - 15).

We can prepare to meet Jesus by asking Him to come into our lives, to be our Lord and Personal Saviour and saying No to sin and all forms of unrighteousness.

Is your name in Jesus Book of Life?

Is He preparing a place for you?

You can make sure today!!

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You because I know my accommodation is secure in Heaven with You, Amen

Memory Verse:   John 14: 12

"Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he do also and greater works than these shall he do because I go unto My Father"
