To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: - Romans 2:7.
Too many of us spend a lifetime trying to work and have a good living. We want to build up material things, give our family everything they could ever want for. We join every group possible, run every race, and run ourselves ragged, trying to keep up with the world. We want to leave behind a good opinion of ourselves in the world, when we pass away.
Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. - Psalms 25:4.
Everthing we've accomplished - records, achievements, reputations, and tributes, will all pass away or fade from the minds of others. The legacy that we leave behind won't matter, when we meet God face to face. The only thing that will matter is, did you know God as your personal Savior? Did you seek after Him, and obey His commandments? Did you listen to His voice and do His will? Were you watching for His coming? Will He say to you, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant", or will it be, "depart from me, I never knew you"?
Prayer : Our Heavenly Father,
We know that nothing we do here on earth will get us to heaven. The only way there is through your son, Jesus. Help us to reach out and touch Him, to stay in contact every day and live the life of holiness. Teach us your ways! We give you praise! Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."
Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.
