(This is a quick-read but definitely worth posting.)
Last week, I was called in by one of our administrators to address my tardies. (I work and exceed expectations when I get there, but I may be a little late. Ask my past administrator, Kathleen Turner. Lol However, that doesn't make it right. I have to get to work on time.) Anyway, as I was saying, I was called in. He said that, that was my warning. If I don't improve, the next step would be being sent to Labor Relations, and then if that doesn't solve the problem, the next step can be termination.
Listen! Termination was all I needed to hear. Every day since, I've been on time. Not only have I been on time, I have been here 10 to 15 minutes before time.
As I was en route to work this morning, something dropped in my spirit.
The Holy Spirit "calls" us in to convict and to correct us, just as my administrator did. The Bible assures us that if we don't live our lives in a way that is pleasing to God, we will face something much worse than a termination- we will face HELL.
...but what do we do when we are "called in" by The Holy Spirit? Do we do all that we can to get it right just as I have after being called in by my boss? Or do we keep ignoring God's instructions and living under the "God is a forgiving God and He knows my heart" excuse?
Listen, although we should be quick to respond when those who are in authority corrects us (that's scripture, so stop getting mad at your boos. lol >Hebrews 13:17<) however, we should be even quicker to respond when the Holy Spirit convicts and corrects.
Hell is real...and the rise of unexpected deaths should be all that you need to know that we don't have the time that Satan wants us to think we have.
Submit and Surrender to Christ NOW. Don't be late for "work."
