Working in vain
The world works and strives for things that will not last, things that will perish. The day that we die everything that we have attained and gathered will stay behind, it will all perish. Man will not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. We have to work for the kingdom of God. We have to gather our treasures in heaven or else the day that we die we will be bankrupt.
We gather treasures in heaven through doing the will of God, through HEARING the Word of God, that which He tells us to do and doing that. In that way we build up our treasure in heaven but if our treasure is on earth we will have nothing when we die and stand before Jesus Christ. If we had no interest in the kingdom of God, if we did not care for Jesus Christ to obey Him, to live for Him and to build His kingdom then we will have no place with Him the day that we die. All profit that we gained in this world will stay behind, it will perish. all credit, all attainments, all qualifications, everything that this world treasures, money, riches, property, fame, all of it will perish. Only that which we have done in obedience to Jesus Christ, under guidance of His Holy Spirit, only that will stand. Everything that we have done will be tested by fire and if we have no treasure in heaven we will have no inheritance with Jesus Christ.
Are we working for things that will perish or are we working for the kingdom of God? Will we lose everything that we have worked for or do we have a treasure in the kingdom of heaven?
May Jesus bless you.
