No Time for Celebration

Many Christian believers think they are saved because they believe in Jesus. They think they can sit back and have a party in church, have doughnuts and coffee, while they wait for the rapture and snarl "unbelievers," that are not "saved" or not members of their church, those who do not go to church.

Jesus never called us to a party. He never called us to "church."  He calls us to follow Him and work for His kingdom. There is a race to be run. There is a fight to be fought, there are battles to be won.

Jesus has not done it all for you. You need to gird your loins and get into the fight. Get up, get into action, deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Jesus, every day. Repent and be holy. Be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. Put on Jesus, be filled with His Holy Spirit and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Bear good fruit, multiply, be a disciple of Jesus Christ and make disciples.

If you don't bear fruit, you will get cut off and burned. You will not enter heaven.

There will be a celebration in heaven for those who followed Jesus, won the race, the battles, overcame, made disciples for Jesus and endured with Him until the end.

Do not sit back and become complacent. There is no time for celebration now. You first have to win the prize of eternal life by following Jesus and enduring with Him, until the end.

May Jesus bless you.
