PREPARING FOR OUR NEXT MOVE!
John 14:1-3: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
Congratulations to all my Two Thousand and Twenty Graduates from whatever school you attended. You stayed the course for Twelve long years. You worked hard and finished it. The members of First Baptist Church and I are so proud of you. You have received your diploma and this document is conferring unto you all the Honors and Privileges that come with your successful completing your courses of academic study.
Have you had time to stop and consider and ask yourself life’s greatest question for a young mind like yours? That question is, What’s Next? Are you making preparations for your next step? The world is waiting for your answer. Are you ready to answer yet? Well let me help you with the answer. The answer doesn’t always have to be yes, I am ready to take my place right now! Bring it on! It could be wait a minute. Let’s slow down, I need more time for preparation. When I enter this world on my own, I want to be prepared. Most of us know that when we finished high school, we were not a finished product. We needed more study to complete us so that as we take on the world, the world might not be ready for us, but we will be ready for the world!
You see Jesus went back to his Father to prepare a place for us. Don’t you see Heaven is a prepared place for prepared people? And so is this world. Take the next step to make sure you are prepared (ready) for what this world has to offer you. Remember God has given you so much to offer this world, but the world can wait until you are ready to make your move.
GOD BLESS YOU
BE GOOD TO EACH OTHER
