30th August, 2016.

Scripture Reading:  Ephesians 5:16.

Memory verse for the week: Isaiah 53:5

“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” (NKJV)

Ever since I was born, I have not seen many people arrived late to the airport when the person is travelling. In fact, when the plane is taking off at 11:00pm, the person will be at the airport by 7:00pm. Wow! That’s how much people value travelling overseas. But on a Sunday morning when Church has long begun that’s when you see teen guys & teen girls with ‘swag’ gliding like pregnant women to Church. They know they are late, but because they have a new Armani suit on and the latest Michael Kors bag, they want everyone to see it. Church starts at 7:00am, but people will come at 9:00am, why? They think praise and worship is for the uncivilized. Just take the test to call them on Monday at 5:30am, you’ll realise they are awake including those in boarding schools.

Know this today, anytime you go to Church one minute late, you have NOT attended Church at all. There is a register of God, where angels record the name of those who come on time, and you’ll be surprised that in Heaven they will tell you, you never attended Church. If Christ is saying ‘where two or three are gathered, I’m in their midst’, you think He comes late? (Mat.18:20)

The time you give is the time He keeps.

What does it mean to arrive late to Church:

  1. Disrespect to Christ
  2. Betrayal of Christ
  3. Disregard to the Church and the Pastor
  4. Interruption of an eternal Program

Now consider all these, and tell me they have not sinned.

Remember, Eternity’s Flight is not a flight taking you to overseas, it’s a flight taking you to Heaven. Don’t miss it!

There are a lot of people who are planning to go to Church late this Sunday. Let this message hit them. Most of us are victims.



  1. Father Lord, forgive me for coming late to your sanctuary in Jesus name.

Any habit in my life that will make me to miss heaven, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
