A BY LEADER OLUMBA OBU
I have earlier told you a story about a Bishop who founded many churches, and in each of these churches he had a servant. This servant abided by every instruction the Bishop gave him. And it came to a time when the servant passed on to the world beyond. Being a small boy and a servant for that matter, his burial was not given prominence. But in the world beyond, this boy lived in a storied building which was well furnished. He had other good things of life to make his life easy. With these bounties, the servant had perfect peace. It was not long when the Bishop passed away and at the world beyond, he met his erstwhile servant actually living in opulence. While he hardly had a place to lay his head. This is the irony of life.
Beloved, God shall reward you according to your works. If you had recognized God and kept to his commandments by refraining from the eating of flesh, fornication, falsehood, anger, murder,etc, no problem would have come your way. It is as a result of this He said, "Henceforth I call you not servants, for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: But I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father, I have made known unto you." (JOHN 15:15).
